    Suspension rebiuld advice

    Hello

    I have a 1998 Audi A4 B5 TDI Avant 2wd.

    I'm planning a suspension rebuild as after 195k it's well passed it's best.

    I plan to fit new Meyle arms at the front and new bushes at the rear and a Weitec spring and damper kit.

    While I have the suspension stripped down, is there anything else I should think about renewing?


    Thanks,

    Adrian

    Front wheel bearings were noisey on mine at 160k so i changed them when i did the arms.

    Engine mountings on mine are also knackered and i'm looking at changing those soon, i have replacements at home awaiting some time for fitting.

    Bearings are especially recommended as you have to strip a lot of what your working on out anyway to get the bearing out
