FN2 Rear Suspension make up.

Can somebody please list all the components that make up the rear suspension on the FN2.

As far as I can work out, it has only the following components, and they'll need replacing sometime in the next six months.

2x shocks
2x springs
torsion bar/beam with 2 bushes.

There are some bushes for the springs to mount in but that's about it.

It is a very simple set up.

The beam axle won't need replacing unless you really want to and have a 1,000 to spend, only the bushes wear out.
these can be sourced from ebay for 100 or so unless you want to go polybush.
The labour to remove old and fit new might be a few hundred unless you can DIY.

plenty of threads on here about doing it.

Ta Wilmo. I'm aware of the rear beam 'bushes only' job. The bushes for the rear springs I didn't know about which is why I'm asking.

Rear spring bits here:

would only need replacing if they were shot, likewise the springs

Recommend putting this website on your browser favourites then you can look up everything:
