Which bushes are best to get, genuine vauxhall ones, uprated ones like powerflex or somet else?
just had to replace my own back axle to to damage,taking it from another car in the scrappy was quite easy,but i got a garage to put it on the car but i replaced the back bushes.i have trade club card and got from vauxhall 2 back bushes at a cost of £58 for both,mines are i suppose the same as yours and you need to ask for the bigger bushes with the metal sleeve through them,the smaller ones wont fit,as for fitting the garage guy said they were awkward to fit cos he had to pull them out with great difficulty,and had to replace my back brake pipes too,cos of corrosion and i aint seen one bit of difference in road holding,but because its an mot fail its best to get them done and bite the bullet,hope this helps and good luck............Davie
