    Default Rear lower wishbones

    I'm replacing the rear control arms and drop links on Friday should I go to the expense of also replacing the wishbones? Has anyone fitted them and noticed a difference? Thanks

    I have replaced two lots of rear UCAs and never done the lower arms. If they ain't broke... Just my view. ;-) Paul

    Cheers Paul, that's the sort of answer I was after really think I'm being over cautious.

    ;-) We all do that some time. I know I do! Just the UCAs make a big improvement. The car feels much more planted. I kept my old UCAs last time, though and will rebush them with some Powerflex polyurethane bushes next time. Not cheap but they should outlive the car! Paul

    Good thinking mate I've bought Febi bilstein ones, there a bit more costly but as the cheapo ones are a waste of time IMHO

    I think my most recent ones (a year on the car now) were the same brand. I got 'em through Neo Bros, the Saab specialist. I got Meyle front ARB drop links at the same time too. I need to do my front and rear ARB mounting bushes, though. It never ends! Paul
