At your mileage, it will be a big list. But let's start with your steering and suspension parts. You will need to check, both side driver and passenger:

1. Tie rod ends (both inner and outer)
2. Ball joints
3. Sway bar bushings and links
4. Strut assembly
5. Wheel balance, roundness and alignment
6. Tire: note for cupping, blister, etc.
6. Engine and transmission mounts

Thank you so much for your list. I know what you mean concerning the mileage on my car. I have had my baby for along time and she has been very good to me. I love this car and I really do not want to get rid of her. The engine runs like a clock and I still have the original transmission

#3 & #4 have already been replaced less than 2 years ago. I just got new tires so that takes care of #5 & #6. So that would leave #1 & #2 & #7.

Is #7 a big & expensive job to have done?

I really appreciate you taking the time to help me.

Thank you,
Susan

The entire work will be about 9 hours of labor plus, the cost of alignment after they are done, and cost of parts. You don't have to do everything at the same time. Just get the car inspected and do the most needed first.
