  • Elise S2 door waist seals

    Suspension refresh advice

    I'm after some advice please, from those on MLOC that have more technical knowledge than me - which is probably most of you! My car is going in to Gav's in January to 'refresh' the suspension.  The wishbones are coming off and need rustproofing - I'm thinking POR 15, is that best? And should I have them passivated first? Also, what bushes should I use? I don't want it to be harsh as it is mostly used on the road. And what about arb bushes? Are there any of those to avoid? Any
