    damn right haha..... poly dogbone does my nut in, anything else in poly will tear me apart!!

    Is it easy to get the old bushes out and new ones in? or are we talking an arse of a job?

    ideally a press...... or a good vice, you can destroy your old ones getting them out but the new ones need to go in nice and square
