    We all know how various things like bushes and dampers wear out but I have wondered what people think concerning springs that have done 100k or so?

    I ask as I have the Sport suspenders, needing new shocks really, happy with the ride & quality of it but not the body roll.

    Do you think new shocks on their own would make a good improvement or should I be thinking of new springs at the same time??

    Upgrade the sway bars, that will keep the ride quality, but reduce body roll.Probably cheaper than buying springs from a dealer too
