New lowering springs : is there any rubber part I should also replace?
 
Well after 10 years in the salt my Eibachs have had it, and I ordered some new Megan springs. My question is what do people usually replace at the same time? I found a rear lower lower rubber isolator and definitely changing those, but what about the upper? Should I be changing the bump stop? Fronts look OK still, and strut bearings are still good, so I think I'm OK in the front.

For those who are wondering the K160073 rear coil spring isolators from Moog fit like a glove on the Megan springs. I installed 4 of them and they fit just as well on the top and bottom of the springs.

Smart, Mine were almost shot when I installed my Megan's.

Change out your SB bushings, too? Easy swap at most any 4x4 shop with a generic size selection of Energy Suspension polybushings with mating strap/mount( get with zerks).

Then there's the SB end links... after that, you shouldn't have many more loose bits besides shocks and struts, suspension rubber bushings/Bjoints ,as they age.

Yep, I have ES rear sway bar bushings already, that I modified to be greasable (added a groove inside, a hole and a zerk fitting). Not as good as the fronts, that are factory greasable ES bushings, but better than nothing. They warn me when I need an oil change, they usually start to squeak after 10000 km without a greasing ;)

How much did the springs lower the car?

I am trying to find lowering springs and shocks already put together for the front. I also want to lower the rear at the same time. does anyone know where I can get a set of matching shocks and springs.
