    Default Changing Suspension parts

    Hi I've now decided to keep my car for a while longer and I'm wanting to replace most suspension parts as its now 9 years old and done 76k. I've got uprated drop links and have had the upper rear control arms replaced. I'm keeping the shocks and springs as it was lowered 4years ago, I'm looking to do bushes, mounts, arms etc... What should I be thinking about changing? Thanks

    Well if your looking to keep your shocks and springs then it does not really leave much , ARB bushes is the most obvious thing to change especially if they are the originals .
    What led you to think of changing parts ie do you have a knocking noise from the suspension .

    ARB shackles. ARB bushes, upper control arms, check the lower bush in the rear hub for signs of wear,

    front suspension -

    top mounts, top bearings, drop links, lower wishbones (check for wear), ARB's
