Front end bushings

Maybe this should be in tech, but I felt pretty newb asking so here goes. What are all the bushings in the front called? I know there are sway end links (1 per side), inner and outer lower control arm bushings(2 per side), and a set of uppers (1 per side), and there are also some subframe bushings (Not sure on location or amount).

Not sure really which are which, especially on the subframe bushings, so I figure I would ask. I am going to replace all that I can and need to make sure I am buying all the right parts. I have my guesses as to what they are, but no idea where to find what I need...

Thanks in advance!

the lower control arm outer is a ball joint, not a bushing, the rear is best swapped with the whiteline +1* caster bushing in my opinion:


Unfortunately I don't remember what all of them are anymore, it's been a while.

There are four in the front subframe. I Drilled holes at 12, 3, 6 and 9 and then used a air saw to cut them out. After powder coating the subframe I replaced the spent bushings with poly bushings I got from JNZ.
