    Vehicle : Insignia Tourer

    Trim : Elite

    Engine : 2.0 CDTI (160ps)

    Year : 2010

    Default Will I need to replace the top bushes/bearings?

    Just ordered a lowering kit yesterday which will give a 45mm drop all round.

    Should I be looking to replace the strut top bushes and bearings too? I just phoned the dealers and it adds another £90 to the price if I do which I could really do without.

    Any advice appreciated.
