Re: Rear bushes!!!
I've done this job as well this weekend.There is a set order to do the lower bushes that takes the grief out of it. To remove, start at inner bottom arm bush,then release each bush in turn ending at the inner spring pan bush. re assemble starting ion the opposite order,inner spring pan,outer spring pan and so on ending at inner bottom arm. Cleanliness between the the faces is essential as they are a tight fit as you say. Sorry this is too late for you andyroo, might help someone in future though.
