<strong>Thanks for the replies chaps,
It is the bush with the long bolt that is on it's way out so it looks like 2 new wishbones. Lee, what part of the job have you found to be too difficult?

AFAIK Powrflex only do the rear bushes for the lower wishbone.
The main problem when changing the lower wishbone is that the rear bushes are spring loaded. You have to feed the new one in straight and level.
You will have to undo the rear of the engine tray.
Undo both antiroll bar links on both sides of the car and lift the roll bar up out of the way.
Undo the bottom ball joint, long droplink bolt, upper wishbone ball joint, rear bush bolts and the allen bolt that secures the silver fork arrangement on the bottom of the strut.
Remove all the clips for the brake hose and wiring.
Drop the suspension down and remove the silver fork assembley from the bottom of the strut (you may have to tap it off with a hammer), this will give room to remove and refitt the wishbone.
Jack the suspension up until the wishbone is level and jiggle it about until you get the ball joint bolt clear, you may have to hammer the ball joint bolt free.
You should now be able to remove the old wishbone and slide in the new one. Rebuild the suspension back up. The rear bushes can take some lining up to get the bolts in.
The first side took me over six hours but once we had got a plan the second side took me two hours on my own.
