    I noticed today that the front bushes on the rear axle aren't looking to healthy.Is it worth putting poly bushes in or just new oem ones?

    thanks in advance

    New OEM ones will make a huge difference, and cost about £7 each.

    When they do them at work on other models which have similar they end up ripping the rubber out and then using an air chisel to get the casing out. Then the new ones slip in pretty much. Can be done on a drive its just not the easiest job to do. Bit of brute force is needed to get them out and various cutting is required. Also heard freezing the new bush makes it easier to get in.
