Thank you speed bump i did not see on a pitch black road

Seeing as i hit a speed bumper doing about 35 miles an hour i now need to replace all of this. I have check everything out and these things are now messed up. Still drives fine on the street but once i get high way speeds it shakes violently.

front sway bar bushings
front sway bar links
upper and lower ball joints on both sides
and the computer tie rod steering assembly

Everything from autozone is just to much money and advance always sells you the wrong part(s), and some parts both stores have to be order or I gotta drive to quam to a store that has them. So I went on quadratec.com and found everything and with shipping it all comes to 354.87. what are you's guys thoughts? I haven't ordered anything yet.

I know all that stuff is maintanence. I just wasn't planning on having to spend that this coming week. Any suggestions on each places or if that sounds about right for those parts from that side.

Sounds to me like it's time to get the lift done. I know that some lift kits have you replacing these items, so it seems to be "the time"

For about $100 more than Q-tec you could go with the JCR one ton setup.

You sure it didnt just knock a wheel weight off one of your wheels? I would go have your tires balanced before you drop all that money.

i'm sure, i put the front end in the air and took the wheels off. those are fine. then i started from the drivers side and worked my way over to the passenger side and my tie rods have alot of play in them and my sway bar bushings and end links are bent and bushings are bad. shes got 197k and counting so i'm gonna keep her going. i don't want to lift it seeing as i might be getting rid of it next spring. i atleast want one more winter with my zj. and plus i dont know if or when the tie rods and sway bar stuff was ever done, so better safe than sorry.

He was doomed as soon as the "computer tie rod steering assembly" took a hit...
