What is a complete list of front suspension?

I understand it to be the following. (Want to understand it better to help me deal with the garage on Monday).

Lower wishbones
Upper wishbones
Anti Roll Bar
Track rod ends

Is this literally everything, and do the bones lierally just get bolted onto the chassis?

Also.... What exactly do the droplinks do, and what would happen if a droplink was not effective?

Re: What is a complete list of front suspension?

On the 155 there was strut top bearings and rubber bushes to go with them. I'm assuming the 147, 156 and others have the same.

Drop links attach the ant-roll bar to the lower wishbones. They basically help the ant-roll bar stop the car rolling in bends by using the force of the lower wishys to basically try and keep the car level.

That reminds me, there are also bushes for the ant-roll bar that attach to the chassis (I think). The anti-roll bar doesn't stop the car wandering about the road. If the drop links are really **** you may get a clunk from the AR bar when you corner or go over a big bump.
