Well, I have this 93 Caprice wagon with the towing package and 5.7L engine.

It recently hit 171,000 miles. I noticed that my steering box started to leak and doesn't feel as responsive anymore. I am going to replace it.

My question is, what other front end parts do I need to replace at that kind of mileage, as I am approaching 200,000 miles? I don't seem to have any problems with it. My daily driver is a FWD car, so after it, Caprice doesn't feel as tight. I cannot remember how it felt when it was younger.

Can someone point out a front-end-guide-for-idiots type web site with all the pics? I have both FSM and Haynes manuals.

New bushings will make a world of difference.

Here's where I bought my kit: http://www.powerperformancemotorspor...p?ProductID=21

It has everything but the center link.
