Top 5 Suspension Parts to Replace for a comfier ride

Hey,

Which 3-5 suspension parts would you replace on a 2006 WK Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7 4WD to improve the overall ride (I don't race or off road at all though) for highway/city driving?

I already have replaced the shocks and struts, and am buying new Firestone Destination LE 2's in a month.

Which parts would you be looking to replace on this 2006 with 125,000 mostly highway miles? Looking to stay stock though, but will try something else if it's a huge difference. I don't lift or lower the Jeep also. Thanks.

Re: Top 5 Suspension Parts to Replace for a comfier ride

Hopefully you did the coil spring isolators when you did the struts in the front. With 125K this would have definitely been on the top 5 to replace. I would also include ball joints in that list.

Re: Top 5 Suspension Parts to Replace for a comfier ride

swaybar/swaybar links, coil spring isolators, shocks.. everything else should be fine, unless you swap your coils for ones with lesser mileage for a better ride. thats about it

Re: Top 5 Suspension Parts to Replace for a comfier ride
