Good fix of the suspension ; that kind of common sense approach to what some people feel are scary warning lights will see you well on your travels
Rather than screaming the brake to death (it dies/melts a little more each scream) , pick up Bodsy's brake bible and learn how to carry out an EPB adjust yourself. This is something else you should be able to do in the field TBH, and again will serve you well. I'm down to 20 minutes a side now as I'm used to it, and it's an easy preventative maintenance each month.
By the way, I too got those lights on my car once, and it was actually the parking switch lever - there are two switches in there so the computer can check twice that you mean to engage it so a switch fault doesn't slam the emergency brakes on. If there's a concurrence error (switches disagree with each other) a fit is staged by the ECU and the lights come on.
Finally, there's a gent called 10forcash over on the other site - the man is a marvel and he'd give your car an excellent assessment of travel worthiness, I'd certainly recommend using his services to set your car as straight as it can be.
