156 V6 front suspension advice.
So.... I forked out £300 to get the arb and drop links done to solve my car's knocking and banging and while they did need doing (arb moved from side to side and drop links were knackered) it has made the knocking and banging worse, not better. Ace.
I know I have a broken d/s coil to replace along with the matching one the other side (ouch) and suspect the dampers have gone if they are the original ones on 100k miles.
My questions are as follows :
1. What are my options with new parts? On a very tight budget now as I didn't expect to be shelling out £3-600 on my new car
2. What is a ballpark price for that work assuming I have the non-Veloce suspension with the spring coming in at about £50 if I remember correctly and that the coils and dampers need doing.
3. Are there any good DIY guides as this is a possibility?
Cheers, my car is officially a money pit. Dammit.
