    Default Suspension parts ordered

    Well having got my saab droplinks in the post last week i have been in today and ordered front anti roll bar bushes, rear anti roll bar bushes and strut top mounts. I need to order in inner track rod ends kit and might order the outer track rod ends as well.

    The car had new springs and shocks 2 years ago (23000 miles) so they should be fine and i need to check if the rear control arms are ok. Hope they are as the guy in the parts bit said they are £70 a pop.

    Hopefully this list of bits will stop a lot of the bumps and squeaks.

    I might be really cheeky when i have all the parts and see if theres any kind soul nearby with a mechanical brain fancies a fitting party for beer tokens if i am struggling

    Mate you would be a life saver. My brother in law said he would be able to fit them but they have just recently had their 3rd kid and are moving house in 3 weeks and i dont want to put him under any pressure. I would be willing to travel up if it was easier.

    I looked at the how to's but would rather have somone guiding me if i ferk it all up lol.

    Arb bushes are easy as long as you disconnect the drop links first and as your doing the strut mounts and drop links too then it'll all be disconnected.

    The inner tie arms can be a fiddle

    Glad you dont think the uca's need changed as they are a complete *******

    I am praying they dont. I believe i can check by trying to pull on the wheel to see if theres any play? (according a youtube vid)

    Yeah giving the wheel a sharp tug at the top is the way to check them. If you hear/feel a clunk then it needs replaced
