I must be the masochist in the group because I love rebuilding suspensions. We have three classic cars; the Opel of course and my 69 Coronet and 68 Dart, I've rebuilt all three in my garage. All of them are non-OEM rebuilds; the Mopar's have a lot of work and aftermarket parts.
On Maria's Opel we changed out the front transverse spring and rear springs for the 1" lowered ride height and swapped out to poly bushings and red Konis on all four corners. The PO had installed new ball joints several years earlier so I left them alone. Horsepower is great but precise steering and braking just make the cars a pleasure to drive. Suspension work is dirty and nasty and knuckle-busting but can usually be knocked out in a weekend or two and the end results are phenomenal.
