I've seen the bushes for sale on ebay for around 30 per pair meaning they're would be charging over 300 labour to do this job.
Is this a job that could be done myself, or what should i expect to pay for a non reno dealer to do the job.



They are sometimes a total pain to extract, I had mine done recently at an indi for around 120 all in. He had to cut them out I believe. If you remember the old Mk3 Cortina Void bushes you will realise the issue.
