suspension bushes

i have had my front wishbones replaced under warranty on my 159, one of the new wishbones had to be replaced several days later due to a fault in the new part!
does anyone know of a manufacturer who makes replacement bushes, rubber or polyeurathane?
one of my front bushes is starting to knock again and i am seriously thinking of part exchanging the car if these problems cannot be sorted once and for all.

If you have any joy then please let me know. Nothing availble from Polybush super flex etc. You will find some parts avaialble from TRW which might be original fitment parts.

I have some rattles and steering misalignment which I believe would be sorted if I could find any after market bushes but I have'nt been able to find anything.

I'd prefer to stick with the Alfa bushes. At least you know they have been through millions of miles of testing to get the best compromise between control and suppleness. Aftermarket items won't have the same investment.

I have worked on the development of a major manufacturers front suspension and we got to 'Update N' before launch (it starts at A, B etc before reaching N!)
