I'm trying to make sure that I have to never do this again pretty much so I want it to be reliableDepends... IF like me.. I usually replace anything in the area that looks suspect. Too often: everything.
In the hope that I won't be immediately surprised by something else nearby failing.
Do you want to keep the car reliable.. or is this a short term patch job?
Yep. As above, just the shocks and the mounts.No I'm not worried about that I've done them many times on other cars I'm just wondering what parts I need for doing the springs and shocks
Ya good idea thanks for the infoYep. As above, just the shocks and the mounts.
If you're doing the springs as well then I would definitely recommend you buy new top and bottom seats for the springs. Number 8 and 10 in the above diagram.
Also start spraying everything now with penetrating oil.
