Suspension swap, what else to do/change ?

I'm going OME soon, factory springs and shocks need a
break, what else should I check, change, modify while
I have suspension in pieces ?

EE lower retainers or complete spring retainers kit ?
LR genuine rubberized shock tower securing ring ?
LR genuine rubberized spring isolator? Where?
RN or TerraFirma spring retainer plate ?

Please chime in.

You wont needs retainers for standard ome suspension. I did the rubber shock tower rings and isolators on top of the rear springs. A good time to do at least frame end bushings in front radius arms and rear links. Ditch the rear sway bar.

Start reading all the "installed lift have vibrations" threads.

I'm doing all the front and rear bushing at this time.
Just finished the radius arms bushing, next is panhard
rod bushings, then I'll do the rear.

Phillip, so you used RBC100111 on top of front springs
and ANR2938 on top of rear springs ?
