    Default Suspension Parts

    Going to be changing springs and shocks soon,Probably Bilstein B4 and either Eibach or Pi springs.Might go down the route of Supersport Sprint Kit.

    The real question is are there any other parts required ? Top mount ? I think its called but not sure,if im going to be replacing springs and shocks i want to do the job properly,can i purchase additional items and just bolt on a complete new shock assembly ?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I am doing the same. Top strut bearing will probs need doing on both sides at the front. I went for the whole lot, but front drop links are cheap enough off ebay and an easy swap.

    ARB bushes are a pain so unless they are knocking its not worth buying in. I did the rear upper control arms also and will be doing my rear drop links too

    If it ain't broke don't fix it... or you will have loads of pointless work and expense outstanding like me lol

    Nope, as far as I know the bottom of the spring just mounts into the shock which will have a little groove for the end of the spring to seat into I havent taken anything apart on mine at the mo as still waiting on the springs but thats the general layout
