Those suspension bushes

Hope I'm not being a bore here but....those rear suspension bushes you guys were talking about before- are there any classic noises to listen out for while driving. I'm hearing small clunks very occasionally from the back end when cornering, but it's stopped recently. Could even have been something in the boot!

Spider's done 40.000 miles altogether. If they are worn - how much??? By the way, the knackered intermittent wipers on my car are still being annoying.
Cheers guys.

Alfa now have available a modified arm which has a cut down bush and steel washers which protect the alloy subframe. If your subframe aint too badly damaged you can fit these.

I just had both my rear suspension arm bushes replaced as part of my (first) MOT. Cost 65 quid labour & 170 quid for 2 bushes & 2 swing arms.

And this after forking out about 800 quid for tyres, pads & disks recently!

Please, no more!
If it needs doing, it needs doing, though, and I reckon you owe it to your lovely car to keep it in top shape. Otherwise, why have it?
