Upper front strut mount/bearing assy; prefernces?

Amazing how much $$$ variation there is on the strut mount/bearing assys! From $9 and change ea. (Rockauto), up to around $85 each!
Reinforced lower rear control arms? The trailing arms? Did you "box" them? Top and bottom? Sides, too? I was thinking they looked a bit fragile for V8 use when I had them in the blast cabinet. Went to the poly bushings from IPD on the front of them, then painted 'em, but have not done the other bushings on the axle housing. Have a complete axle assy from the '84 manual trans Turbo parts car, easier to do it with axle assy. on jack stands, then paint and swap whole thing.

Bright spot- my welding is getting a LOT better!
