What other parts should I consider upgrading while it's up on the lift with the wheels off? Are there any parts xi owners are seeing worn while they're under the car at this stage? Bushings, mounts, front end componants etc?
Definately get new top strut mounts, I've a KW V3 and it was pretty harsh. Now I've changed a lot of bushings and the top mounts, feels like a new car now. Also check your front tension strut bushings for cracks in the rubber, therefore you need to unmount them as it's not visible from outside.
