156 SportWagon : trailing arm bushes are shot
OK, had a knocking from the rear for a while. Car went in for a basic service yesterday and they had a look (local independent) and said the trailing arm bushes are shot, the ones that fit into the hub carrier.
They're quoting "roughly" £50 a side inc. parts and labour with a caveat that it could obviously go up if it turns out to be a bugger of a job.
Platts (AR dealer in Stoke) on the other hand have quoted me £115.66 fitted for both. Naturally I'm inclined to go with that as a firm quote.
Just wondering, (a) is that a good price from a dealer and (b) does anyone know of any independent AR specialists who may be able to better that?? Oh and what's the general view of poly bushes??
