shocks and lower arm rubber

shocks and lower arm rubber bushes - 

panhard rod bushes don't wear as badly

I run stiffer springs now and that pushes the wobbles from 110km/h up to 140km/h which i rarely travel at

Thanks you for the reply, New

Thanks you for the reply, New thicker, stiffer coils (all 4) are being fitted tomorrow, also with am +- 50mm increase in lenght. I did replace the rear shocks 12 months ago.

 

Will test the vehicle over the weekend before I replace the lower control arm rubbers.

lower rubbers

it's the lower front ones that typically fail first
