Shid Rod Bushing Clip
Triple Shock mount
Trailing Arm Box Kit

Spring plate bushings, inner and outer.
Clutch and accelerator cables (since you will have the pedals out)
I would not do the adjustable spring plates personally. (not worth the $ IMO)

Other things if doing a large order:
New ball joints (German)
Brake rebuilds frt and rear, hardware etc.
Frt and rear wheel bearings and seals.
Tie rods
Steering coupler........

Why do you think the adjustable spring plate is not worth it?

Sure, how about 2? 1 in the car and another just as a spare?

If you drive over rough surfaces (the main reason to build it) the adjuster gets beat up and then won't move. A friend tried them on a buggy that he raced with not so good results. I personally would rather set the torsions (a couple of times after they take their "set"), use the stock plates and use the money on other items. BUT the plates at Chirco's are cheap, so you can try them.

You have trailing arm bushings twice, but no spring plate bushings.
By brake rebuild, I meant wheel cyl's, shoes, hardware, hoses. pos m/c sorry I wasn't clear.
Seals for wheel bearings,

What are you going to use for upper shock mts in the rear? Once you box in the arms and add the shock mounts, the oem upper mount is useless. There is a thread where Daryll showed a higher upper mount without doing a cage. (it is the project Ernest car)

One other thing you may consider to save some $$ is make your own lower shock mount w/tabs instead of the triple shock mount. (unless you want to run multiple cheaper shocks instead of 1 good one)

The outer (spring plate) bushing I can access that easy with the body on. I already have a new brake master cylinder I just picked up. Basically what I am trying to get is anything that might be a pain to get to with the body on. Like most of the front end stuff. Brakes I can just raise the car up and get those done.

I thought I had seen somewhere the triple shock mount welded under the arm. But for me it doesn't matter. I will be putting a cage in so I can mount the shock to it. Do you have the link for that thread on the upper mount??

Thanks for all the help!!
