    You can replace with polybushing, which will last long time but make the ride harsher and you will want to replace all on each side, personally I would replace with genuine ones as they will last another 10 years and keep the current ride quality.

    Yes that looks right to me too. Are you going to press them in yourself?

    Yes a few of us have done it, including myself (although I didnt press in a new bush, just replace the whole control arm).

    I'd say an impact gun is quite crucial you can change it without that but the bolts will just be a lot harder to loosen.

    What do you need to know ?

    What car have you got? As @SpeedyGee said It's easier to replace the whole wishbone unless you like to have the tools or like to have an impossible fight at your hands

    Had to burn my old ones out - what an absolute curse it was in the end. Used my mates 20 ton press and it wouldn't push them free. If I did it again - I would replace just the entire arm.

    I've got a 2.2 Diesel FR-V 2008 Manual.

    I guess the first thing I need to know is what the bush / suspension arm looks like ?:Blushing: Any pictures would be really helpful as would any steps to follow to replace. Thanks!

    Probably about £60 for labour at a guess.
    I think I paid £100 for a pair of wishbones for may Accord
