front end rebuild

Well while i am waiting on all the parts to come in for the complete front end rebuild from rock auto i was wondering if there is any components in the column that should be looked at? the front end has 231k on it and is beginning to get a bit loose... I ordered EVERY replaceable MOOG part so that should be good to go. I have read about people "Rebuilding" the column??? is there parts in there that will wear out and cause looseness?? I want this thing to steer like new.

I'd suggest putting in adjustable camber bushings so that alignments will be quick and easy in the future.

Those are the ones I got at my local napa. Just have to watch that you keep the caster correct when rotating the bushing.

After installing I did a DIY alignment in my garage (If you know your starting angle it can be done), everything seems good so far. If I start seeing abnormal wear I'll take it in for an alignment.
