Hello! im thinking about replacing most of my suspension. My 2010 Commander is getting older and older but i love the damn thing, Im only at 213K Km (130K Miles) and i want to ensure my commander last another almost ten years.



So far on my Build list i have the following


-Delux OME Kit (RRO) (F/R OME springs, Front OME struts, Rear OME shocks, Trim Packers, RRO Control Arms)
-2x Moog K160050 Strut Mount
-Moog K80861 Front Sway Bar Link Kit
-Moog RK621374/RK621375 Control Arm and Ball Joint Assembly

Im probably missing alot still, some things in the rear, tie rod ends and what not. Any input would greatly help me!

Thanks!

If you're going through all of it, you should look into new spring isolators both front and rear, as well as new bump stops. At 130k they're probably pretty well worn.

Check out your front sway bar bushings; no point replacing the links only to have the bar make noise.

Inner and outer tie rod ends may be shot as well.

In the rear, there are also sway bar end links and bushings, track bar bushings, and upper and lower control arms.

If I were to guess, I'd also wager your front differential bushings are shot.

With this list, you'll more or less have a brand new suspension, but there's a good chance not all of these things will need replacing. Use these suggestions as a check list, and build your shopping list as needed.

Thanks so much! i've pretty much found all in Canada bar a few things, Upper Rear Control Arms, Track Bar Bushings. Rear Sway Bar Bushings. and differential bushings.



Its around $3500 With a K&N CAI and a Aries Bush bar. But i think its a worthy investment to keep my jeep on the road for many more years to come.

Here is the list so far. gonna have a shop inspect the front differential bushings and what not before i drop that and replace.



Also not planning on doing this until something break, so far so good. at 215k Km. But by the time im posted (hopefully ) to the next base i want to go should be around 250K Km. so then ill drop the cash on all this. hopefully extending the life of my commander into 500k Km+


Removed the K&N as ive been told CAI are not really worth it without a tune.



Any more advice would be lovely.

Check amazon for the moog stuff, they usually have good prices or rock auto.

Idk if RRO changed their design on the UCAs, but the JBA ones are rock solid. Believe their ball joint is from a hummer. Lol

The ares grill guard is not bad, but serve no purpose at all, the mount points are weak, I would strongly recommend 4xguard matrix. I have had both.

You can also check on e-bay, you get pretty good deals there sometimes.
