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.

Sway bar bushings and sway bar links, for sure

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.

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
