V6 Wishbone

Hi Everyone
Long time no post!

Finally getting around to getting a few jobs on the cally done but have come across a snag.
I need to replace the bushes on the O/S bottom arm but I can't find anyone who sells them. Even ebay returns a blank :banging:
Can I get replacement bushes on their own and are they easy to fit?
I'm also after a pair of front standard coils and aparently they are discontinued and no longer made. I'm not really wanting to lower it though!
Cheers
kkynaston

just buy the front wishbone it works out cheaper and you get all the bushes and bottom ball joint :D

hi mate, the problem is that no one lists them, even in specialist catalogues!
Even the main dealers (Tried Caffyn's in Ashford and Greenhouse in Telford) both say they are delisted

Phone them, the website is pants.
They can get you aftermarket and OE arms.

Make sure they send you the metal sleeves too.

Guys,
Also need new bush for mine. Decided to replace the arms instead. Eurocarparts have them at about £31 each and VCP have them at about £18.00 each.

Hope this helps.
