Rear suspension/brakes - how far should I go?


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I'm about to replace the rear springs, shocks, discs, pads and bushes on my 88 Esprit with 64K miles. While I am at it, I just wondered if there is anything else I should be doing. e.g

Wheel bearings: there is no evidence they need doing, but at 64K miles, should I do them anyway?

Radius Arm Rubber Mounts: they look in reasonable order, but should I do them anyway?

Nuts, bolts, washers: Should I be replacing all these whilst doing the bushes. They came off fine and have some surface rust, but seem in reasonable order?

You MIGHT want to install adjustable upper control arms. I bet your geometry is out-of-spec, even from the factory.

If you have £800-£900 spare, then I would recommend the PNM rear brembo brake kit taken from the Elise.

My handbrake works with 2-3 clicks unlike many.

However, if you've just purchase new disc and pads that would be a waste
