le sigh. I didn't want to turn this into an entire suspension overhaul, but now we're at struts, rear bushings (8 or so), tie rods and ball joints

Now to locate the ~500 dollars to purchase it all.

No man. Just inspect them. If each individual part looks like it's in good shape e.g. you don't actually feel play in the joints/see rips in the boots, then don't replace it. Do 1 joint instead of a pair if you cannot afford it. Point is it's better to replace what needs to be replaced before an alignment rather than waiting 5k miles and having to do it all over again.

Then again, the car has a lot of miles on it, so you might have to go into it expecting the worst
