Which suspension parts would you change? (135,000 miles)

Which suspension parts would you change on a 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4.7 with 135,000 miles (215,000km) on it? I can't use parts that will lower or lift my Jeep, I want to keep it stock.

Also, which suspension part would you change if you want more of a new ride feel?

Any brands in particular?

Thanks.

PS> I've recently added new shocks, tires, rotors, brake pads and changed every fluid possible and am now looking to see if any suspension part needs changing.

I am wondering the same thing. I like the stock height but wasn't a better handling suspension. Was thinking today about the possibility of using SRT springs with a spacer lift to try and tighten up the steering while keeping stock height?

Re: Which suspension parts would you change? (135,000 miles)

for better handling have you looked into replacing the swaybars with SRT swaybars?

as for just replacing backs- id look into the swaybar links, the coil spring isolators, and maybe the swaybar bushings (id leave these if they look decentw it no wear).

why not level the suspension out while youre at it?

Ok, so SRT Sway bar front, what about the links?

back: SRT sway bar links? and bushing if needed, the rubber kind..

I had bought the coil spring isolators but the guy was too lazy or told me mine were ok so he didn't change them. But do they have to remove the coil springs to install them, than I understand it's a lot of work and probably might as well change the springs at the same time?

Correct me if I'm wrong, thanks.
