Question So the suspension seems to be shot

Hey guys,

I've been driving my '95 Bird for a while now with some major squaking and rattling coming from the front passanger side tire area. My guess is that the whole front suspension seems to be shot. The wheel also seems to shake a lot as I drive every once in a while. I saw someone mentioned on the forum that replacing the lower ball joints should fix the problem.

If I wanted to replace the whole front suspension and give it a more sporty ride / stiff ride, what would you guys recommend performance part wise?

I was quoted about $500 bucks for parts and service from one of local shops with standard Ford parts.

Thank you in advance for any advice.

Best regards,

JX
