    may I ask a favour?

    I intend to refurbish the suspension as apart from a couple bushes my car which is a 2001 car has all original suspension still fitted, and starting to groan and knock a bit now after 100K.

    So, can you guys list me what I need to consider please? the obvious is a set of shocks of course (may to one end at a time) but what else please? I want a near new road feel.

    Thanks :)

    I wouldn't have said the springs necessarily need replacing unless they're majorly corroded or cracked?
    Of course if you're lowering it then you'll be getting new ones anyway!
