If the car holds an alignment without the adjustments at their extremes, isn't excessively noisy, rides and handles OK, tires are wearing correctly -- no bald stripes, bad cupping -- you can probably defer rebuild until Bad Things Happen.

Balance that against the fact that when parts wear out all the way, rubber blown out of bushings, metal on metal, the rebuild job can be a lot harder to do! And cause damage to non-replacement parts that cause you do do a treasure hunt for unusual parts.

If its a daily driver, and if it's pushing 10 years since last done... probably best to do it "soon". Sunday or parades only? No hurry.... 

Personally, I'm mechanically demanding, aesthetically tolerant, YMMV!
