Anyone had anti roll bar bush problems?

My Cup has a squeak/graunch sound from the off side front over low speed bumps. Occassionaly the sound is triggered if the near side goes over a bump too.
Mechanic reckons it's anti roll bar bush wear and says it is common on GTVs. I've not read anything about it here (or found anything via a search) so wondering if he's thinking of 147s that seem to suffer with this. He's a well known Alfa indie so I don't doubt his word, but would like to know if others suffer the same.

He's suggesting changing the anti roll bar together with the bushes, and without seeing the evidenace I'm less comfortable with this: the bushes are about a fiver and the bar is 120 odd quid.

There's no knocking so don't think it;'s the drop links, and the lower suspension aqrms are new.

That the noise can be caused (less) by the NSF supports the a/r bar problem.

Anyone suffer this?

I wouldnt have thought the roll bar will be knackered? How about trying a squirt of silicone grease and see if the sound goes away for a while?

Re: Anyone had anti roll bar bush problems?

my drop links made squeak/graunch noises as opposed to knocking. They are v easily disconnected so worth doing to isolate them. If you can't do it yourself then should only take a mechanic a few minutes a side so better than launching into something more expensive first.
