Ball joints and control arm bushes aren't normally included with kits Tertius, but those are the things that I would look at first before doing the suspension upgrade. Also stabilizers and idler arm - once that's all done, then revisit your budget. :winkx:

Hi Tertius,

Try ICM auto parts,
Talk to Ivan, he is the owner and situated in Stikland.

I did mine end of last year and he supplied all the bits and pieces at very good price.
