When you say wishbone bearings, do you mean the rubber bushes? These are the parts that normally fail first.
I would expect that sort of lifespan from a set of non-genuine items, that have been fitted dry (ie not greased first). However, genuine parts should last much longer, the ones on my car lasted 90k.
All I can guess is the parts fitted were not genuine...? Or did you supply them personally? In either case, I'm not sure the garage that fitted them are responsible for their failure, unless of course they lubricated them before fitting with something that wasn't compatible with the rubber bushes, like general purpose grease?
