Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Is it worth it to replace the front struts, inner tie rod and swayer link on my
Equinox? The mechanic suggested it but it was not one of main repairs, just
want to know if I should? I am planning a cross country drive, but I also don't
really have the extra 2,000. And don't know if putting it into this old car is

Since you're planning a cross country drive I'd do the inner tie rods and sway bar links. These are safety concerns. Unless the struts are really bad (like bottoming out) I would let them go for now. HTH. -Jim
