Crazed 159 suspension bushes

how many people have had to have upper/lower suspension arms fitted?, my 159 2.4 has only done 36000 miles and they are shot (uppers)!i think it is really poor that alfa continue to use the same suppliers or type of bush/material, there must be something better around.
My Mercedes c class estate has done 211000miles and all i have to do is brake pads/discs and tyres......!
i am fast losing my patience with alfa after all this time (i started with a 2.0GTV in '86)
can anyone provide me with an alternative solution to constantly changing these damn things, i have had the same trouble on a 166,156 and my 916 spider. aaaggghhhh! what C ...P!

Had my nearside one replaced on my 159 Ti at around 30,000 and now the offside one needs replacing at 36,000...still under warranty though so will be done at no charge to me thankfully.
