    I hated replacing mine... the old bush was a pita, ended up laid on my back with a bloody hack saw. Fitted Polly bushes so didn't have to squeeze rubber back in lol
    If it aint broke, don't fix it!!!

    well all done, spent last couple of days 2hours at each side including tidying up afterwards. maybe 1 1/2 second 1. i noticed the first 1 was a pain to get back in as i needed the larger 1 to be half as long! so ended up hitting it back in with a hammer. then when i did the other side i slit it to make a short 1. then it was spot on! if i hadn't had the tool it would have been a right mightmare and i bet i would still be on the first 1... lol.

    for this week is to get the new rear tyres fitted and then a hunter alignment.
