"When you wishbone upon a star, It don't matter who you are" It's who you know...
Ok, I had my car looked over a few months back and I was only quoted for the lower wishbones so I presume my upper ones are OK for now. I bought new shocks and springs (as I'm sure lots of you are tired of hearing) so in the new year I'll be having a crack at fitting them with the help of a mate who has access to a garage & tools. His mechanical expertise extends to that he put shockers and springs on his Golf Mk4 so he is feeling confident and we have both read over the guides on here but I'm wondering whether its a) worth having crack at the apparently tricky lower wishbones, and b) worth the expense of upper wishbones or drop links while I'm at it. Alternatively I could drop it off at a garage and let them have at it but I'm guessing its a 1 day or two day fair weather job? Any advice/recommendations/warnings before we break my car or cost myself a fortune?
Edit: I'm adding Eibach Pro Springs and B8 dampers, will this help or aggrevate the wishbone issue? Should I paint any parts to prevent corrosion? Should I treat the new rubber bushes with anything?
