    Not much requirement for that IMHO. The bush goes into the gearbox yes - but there is the piece of metal connecting the second bolt. This means there isn't much give in that bush anyway - hence the lack of wear they experience.

    But that's just a support for the the "main" bolt isn't it? Agree though, doubt it does much compared to the other...

    Yes, but it's pretty rigid and means the whole assembly moves pretty much together. The big back bushes on the dogbones are the ones the change, they see the wear.

    I would suggest starting with the rear bushes. The big ones in the fat end of the dog bone.

    i was under the car yesterday morning tugging on the engine and the rear bushes are fine, i can see its moving where the other bush is and its pretty much disintegrated.
