159 front wishbone bush replacement
Has anybody tried to fit one of these replacement bushings:
instead of replacing the whole wishbone? My 159 JTDm has cost me hundreds this year so I'm looking for the most economical solution!
I've already inspected mine & its only this bush which is stiff / creaking (but not knocking). Tried plenty of silicone lube spray, but it only cleared up for a week or so. Other bush & balljoint seem fine.
I've read other posts where people have had bad experiences with Firstline wishbones, but have checked Febi & Birth online catalogues & it doesn't look like they sell this part (Febi sell the more rearward bushing, but not the frontmost one it seems..)
Getting back to the point, I haven't got a proper mechanical press, but am wondering if I can use a vice to squeeze it out most of the way & tap it out completely? All previous experience welcome, thanks.
