Can anyone recommend a particular supplier (e.g. website, ebay id etc)?

Apparently Renault have modified the rear sub-frame bushes and my local independent won't fit anything else as he has found the after-market type just don't seem to last. Mileage isn't the only thing when it comes to wear and tear on suspension bushes it also depends on the roads, driving style and age as all rubber bushes deteriate with age. My local Renault dealer charges 50 for a pair and my local independent charges 2-3 hours labour for fitting. All in he usually charges around 15
