I posted in the GTV/Spider Wheels thread, but wanted advice relating to a front suspension refresh and a wheel change... Sorry if this is a bit of a thread hijack, but it seems relevant with the braces and discussion of ride quality above...
Does the car need jacking to install a front engine bay strut brace?
I think I am going to have a go at changing my shocks, springs (all original at present and car is a 2001...!) plus the nearside wishbone as the drivers side is new (replaced for MoT). I might do the drop llinks aswell 'while I'm there'. Is there anything else I should look to change as a matter of course? I want the suspension to be at its best as I am looking to fit some new 17 inch alloys in the new year and want it to ride as well as possible...
Thanks for any advice guys!
