    Default Suspension done today,

    After a year of the parts sitting in my loft and hall it all got done today,

    All 4 shocks (bilstein B4),
    Eibach Proline Springs (-30mm),
    Both strut bearings,
    Front drop links and ARB bushes.

    How many miles before the springs settle?

    Mechanics report,
    One front spring broken, rear arbs shot and one drop link knackered
