    I think I've finally replaced every suspension bush on Audrey.

    Rear axle, top mounts, shocks, springs, front control arms, top mounts, shocks, springs, front ARB and drop links.

    Is there any bushes left?

    Engine, gear box bushes are next and that odd little one at the front that I seem to have great difficulty remembering what it is.

    There is a walk through if you google it.
    I can't find the link now but after I read that I made me give it to the garage.

    Its a solid rear axel, I think you need to drop it, fire/melt the old ones out and then push the new ones in.
    The pushing is not easy.

    might be a bit beyond my ability, i'm only a lowly electrical switchgear engineer.
    every man to his own job, especially when you havent the experience.
    think i will have to give this one to the mechanic

    I've replaced rear ones with alloy replacements before. Pressing in new rubber ones would probably be a ****ty job.
