Hmmm What to fix first.

Ok as the heading says I have a whole list of problems with my... no lets say niggles with the 156 sw. With Christmas on the horizon I'm not fixing it all now but I have to do something or i'm sure she bite me in the **** for not paying her any attention this month.

1.Ok so first it could do with a drive shaft. The vibration I mentioned in earlier posts which I cured with new cv boots and grease is slowly coming back so looks like its time for a change. Not despirate mind you. Cost 125

2. The brakes and discs are well over due with around 1.5- 2mm on the pads all round with a warning last time on the MOT for thin discs too. Cost 430 for performance items

3. The rear end is rattling like a marble in a dustbin which has been narrowed down to trailing arm hub bushes and transverse arm bushes. I;m going to do the drop links to for good measure.
Cost 106.50

So what order should I tackle it in and what can last a bit longer??? bearing in mind that both drivshaft swap and rear bushes will require 4 wheel tracking too. Cheers guys
