    Default Enything else to replace?

    while im doing my rear shocks next week, ive got rear stabaliser links to fit while everythin is off, i done the same for the front when i lowered it. Would there be anythin else i'd replace while im at it? Or a case of 'not broke dont fix it'?

    Rear upper control arms (pigs to change), ARB bushes (easy to change). But both much easier to do while the spring and shock are off.

    Yeah, that's the rear upper control arms, you'll often see them called "banana arms" on here.

    the rear stabaliser links dont take them off unless your are sure you can get the new ones on . somebody put a link on here and he said it took him 2 hours and he felt like saying stuff it . i tried one side and bent the link while trying to push it back on so i left one side
