    more suspension questions

    ive just ordered vogtland -35mm springs and dampers for my tdi 110. is there anything else worth doing at the same time?

    im putting on new top mounts and was going to buy a bush kit and change anything thats easily accessible but ive heard of people puitting different arbs on aswell. is this worth doing and does anyone have the relevant part numbers?

    thanks

    top mounts and strut top bearings. Could rebush the wishbones if there is excessive movement. You can fit the R32 arbs on front and rear if you want to go that far, think part no.s are in the stickys somewhere.

    is a 35mm drop on a FWD far enough to start having issues with the driveshafts rubbing the ARBs?
