In my personal opinion, the only things worth pilfering are the sway bars. Go for new shocks/springs (lower springs). Also, would you really want to go through all that work of swapping control arms to put in used bushings? I just got done rebuilding my suspension and rear disc swap, but only used the rear bar from an 89 SC (front's an addco) and got rid of my sport springs/shocks since I lowered the car. All my bushings were in very good shape, so I didn't replace any. Much tighter suspension with the 1.5" drop and the kyb (yeah, cheapos, but they're still good enough for as little as I drive the car).
