Default Opinion on Suspension

I am in the process of restoring an EG SI. I am going to completely re-do the suspension on the car and am trying to figure out what way I want to go - replace all the bushings or just replace the entire part.

I can get a whole front end kit from Mevotech or similar for like $400-$500...OR... i can take it all apart and just put new bushings in. I am not 100% sure of the state of most of the suspension parts (if LCA's or UCA's are bent etc.), they look fine but I haven't had this thing aligned since I bought it.

Putting money aside, which way would you proceed? All new parts? Or just re-bush it?

If you suggest replace it all, which brand would you recommend. (NOTE: I am not going for a full-race setup, I want a balance of comfort and performance).

If you have a press or a balljoint c-clamp with corect cups, I would just replace all bushings with OEM Honda.
