    Default A few probs..

    I am getting a funny annoying rattle from my suspension, have been for some time, and think i am going to take the plunge and get some parts as its done 64k now the car. Think a wheel bearing may be going too as there is a drone from rear oh and bad vibration / lack of willingness from car at 80 -90mph (rare overtake only officer)

    Was going to get some bilstein B4's, eibach springs but want to replace the anti roll bars and bushes at the same time. Being dim with all things technical are there any other parts that i should replace while i am at it, droplinks or anything? Also any idea how much roughly it would all cost. Tried local parts department but they were pushing me to booking the car in so i got bored and left!


    Plan is to amass the parts i need over the next few months then girlfreinds brother will take and fit them all (hopefully)lol

    Thanks in advance for any help

    Is the rattle from the front?

    Is the drone getting worse as it could be the tyres?

    rattle is the back and its budget tyres so could just be noisy.

    the rear rattle is more than likely the top arms on the rear suspension..they are about £25 each.. two needed..

    at the front, if you want to change the antiroll bar bushes , the links are only one more bolt, so for the tenner they are i'd do them to..

    bushes would be £1.10 each, and the links are £15.00 each..

    if you want them as cheap as you can, drop me a PM and i may be able to help you out..

    as for the droning at the back, run your hands round the inner edge of the tyre.. if it feels like the tread blocks are 'stepped' to each other, that will be your droning.....it would then need new rear tyres and the rear camber setting, which if you are lowering the car you'd have to do anyway..
