Suspension

Vehicle Information: Year: 1987; Engine (size, modifications): 5 ltr, RMB exhaust, K&N filter, plus 2 wheel and tire; Total Mileage: 96000; Transmission type: Manual;

I am looking to renew my suspension on my 87 (VIN # WP0JB0924HS860XXX). Last weekend a shop told me I will need the following replaced on my car, all new struts, front passenger side upper A arm bushing, rear passenger lower suspension bushing, optional new springs and alignment.Let me give some insight to this shop visit. In the past 5 plus years of ownership I have done the following to prevent the inner corner of my tires from wearing.1) Immediate purchasing the car I had it aligned, suggestion of the owner.2) After a year I purchased new set of tires from NTB and alignment, still wearing the inside corner of the front tires. Both rears wear the centers.3) Following year I bought a 2 plus size wheel and tire. I had the car aligned with a local Porsche specialty shop that only works on Porsches. The results after 15000 miles front inside corner wear, rear passenger inside corner wear and rear driver center wear.Since I will need new suspension what do you recommend installing to prevent these unwanted results. I would like to know your thoughts on the following parts. Bilstein struts with Eibach springsKoni internally adjustable with Eibach springs.Devek's internally adjustable struts with 600 lb springs.Polyurethane Grease able sway bar bushing for 928.Polyurethane front upper control Arm bushing.I use the car for daily drive in the summer and 2 or more days of DE events.Do you know if the upper ball joint are sold separately without getting a new A arm. PETS do not list a part number for the ball joint.When I inquire for suspension parts, I always get ask what brand I have on them. No idea. Can you tell by the VIN # what this car came with?
