Pro Flex Bushes - Front

We have a Alfa Romeo Spider 2.0 TS phase 1 and due to a lack of knowledge etc, we have so far replaced all the rear bushes (with Powerflex) and had the sub frame repaired.

I need to check but I do not remember having any bushes replaced with Powerflex at the front.

1) Are there any that need doing?
2) If so is this a garage job?
3) Or is it easy to do?
4) If so can anyone recomend anyone in the North Oxfordshire area?
5) What cost am i likely to incur?
6) Should I have this done ASAP?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Pro Flex Bushes - Front

It is possible to fit powerflex bushes to the front wishbones, but it's a difficult job and would cost more than buying a new wishbone with bushes pre-fitted. The ball-joint is integrated, so when that wears out you'll have to replace the whole thing anyway - powerflexed or not. New wishbones are about £40 each, so if/when the bushes wear out it's much more cost-effective to replace the wishbone.
