Hey guys,

Just a quick question. I'm looking to completely overhaul the suspension on my 91 cabrio..was wondering what exact parts I would need other than struts, springs, and shock mounts??

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Might as well get new front upper strut bearings. Your spring pads should be fine, and if you're going to do your subframe bushings, you might as well do your differential bushing too. You might have problems with your lower swaybar link brackets breaking, so buy those from the stealership before you start the job (part #9).

Thanks for the help!

I'm also looking to get new shocks and springs. Any suggestions for a decent daily setup on the cabrio? Also, are there places within GTA that I can get all these parts?

Order online is your best bet if you want the right parts the first time,

I'm running H&R sports paired with some billys for DD, the ride is great, but it could be lower. WAY better then the stock ride.
