Hi all, I'm replacing the strut bar to chassis bushes using the 48166E bushing kit and would like to know what other things ball joints etc that I can also replace while I'm at it. T.I.A

Best to do the -
Front and Rear Radial Arm Bushes,
Lower control arm bushes,
Stabiliser Bar Links,
And you will enjoy how nice it will be to drive.

I put Nolathane bushes in my VY, and then got a wheel alignment,
and it drives beautifully, and tracks straight also,
Couldn't afford the SuperPro kit at the time,
but if you can afford it, or planning to hang on to it longer,
go SuperPro, probably last the life of the car.

If you have an VT Olympic Games variant/option vehicle, that will be a collectors item in years to come.

If your doing the radius bush as described then its a good bet your lower control arm bushes are in need of replacement, depending on your budget I would change the top strut mounts bushes and get a pair of new link arm pins that are a little curved and thicker as well. How are the tie rod ends and front struts.
