Suspension Upgrade

Just about to install parts bought some time ago...KONI FSDs and EIBACH Pro springs......never have got round to intentions and all that.

Local garage will be doing work for me......would anyone recomend replacing / upgrading any other parts whilst the car is undoubtedly in bits...i.e. powerflex bushes etc etc.

Car has been well looked after, regular AR dealer servicing etc and has only covered 41k miles in 5 years. I am no mechanic so guidance on what has / is / will fail and could be done at this time....without being silly would be appreciated.

Any advice as always gratefully received.

Re: Suspension Upgrade

Top arms if they have play in them. Same with bottom arms. I can't say I'd recommend putting new bushes in old arms, as the balljoints can go as well..

Droplinks as mentioned above.

Best of luck with it
