    Thinking I may as well change these as all other bushes and joints have been done. How hard to change and where's best to get them.

    I've just taken the front subframe off my 15 year old 125k car, and the bushes still look absolutely perfect. Not sure there is ever enough movement in them to make them deteriorate much.

    Mine will be the originals and I'm about to roll over 170k now. figured they must be tired.

    Looking at them and putting them under the loads that are applied during road use is totally different. My old B5 had the bushes replaced when I done all the front links and it really tightened the car up considering its age.
