    How easy is it to change rubber bush on wishbone?

    I noticed the other day when I was getting my tracking done that the bush on the inside of my wishbone on the right hand side is starting to look canny donald ducked..

    Anyone know how easy it is to fit a new one coz it certainly doesn't look easy? :?

    I dont know about the astra, But on a lot of cars you just buy a new wishbone. You can pic em up for around £18 depending where you go. Or you can buy the uprated nylon bushes as seen in many modding mags for twice the price of a new wishbone and spend ages trying to push them in cos you havent got a press.

    Might be worth asking someone with a copy of EPC to find out weather the bushes can be replaced, but is it worth it when you can probably get the wishbone complete with all the bushes for reletivly little cost.

    I bet NRG could tell where to get them.

    Well it's certainly a thought, but it's something I don't know much about. I'll enquire later on about the price of new parts for it, but whichever is cheapest and easiest is obviously the preference.
