I think my suspension clunks are getting worse, and therefore I want to fix it.
My problem is I don’t have like £1000 or whatever to do it all in one hit. So my question is, what route can I take to do it in stages? I want to avoid as much re-work as possible, but it’s more the money issue than time for me. I’ve had the car a year now, and when I got it, the previous owner had fairly recently installed coil-overs, no idea what brand, but at a complete guess nothing super fancy as I adjusted them in the summer and was a bit surprised to find no locking screws, but my point here is I think I can live with the current setup for the time being, I’m more looking to replace bushes, track rods, wishbones, ball-joints, etc initially.
There’s also the cost of getting a 4 wheel alignment, so again I want to try and take a route where I can start with say drop links, which I think can clunk, don’t cost the earth, easy enough to replace and won’t require an alignment.
I want to do both the front and rear eventually, in a dream world I want to do all bushes. Recently I watched a few videos of someone replacing all the bushes on the rear sub-frame, which looked pretty involved, but not impossible.
So what’s your thoughts folks, any suggestions where I should start, or maybe more importantly, what I should leave and do at the same time, for example don’t do the track rods and then come back later to do the wishbones or whatever, if you see what I mean?
Forgot to add, I replaced the rear bushes (lolipops?) that the front wishbones slot into with Meyle HDs a few months back, so these should be good for a few years.
Thanks in advance
