The inspection results from the TA indicated brakes and suspension components (due to bad bushings). This car is a survivor. My goal was to keep it absolutely as close to original as possible to retain survivor status and hopefully keep value high. So, the question becomes: upgrade or not?

Brakes: I’m replacing soft lines, calipers, rotors, and pads. Basically a full overhaul minus the master. Stick with oem, or upgrade?

Control arms: same question: oem or upgrade?

My primary concern is NOT about performance, it’s about retaining or increasing value.
