Re: Rear axle bushes

Just a query on axle bushes, how long should they last? I had some fitted beginning of last year. when the mot came round in November they were knackered? I got them from Andrew Page 40 for the pair, just wondering if its worthwhile going to renault for genuine parts? I do know the first time i had them done, the mechanic removed the axle to "press" them in, it was his opinion that this was the easiest method. The second set i got my mate to do, he'd just set up his own business and bought the tool, around a 100 (which is what he charged me) so 140 inc bits, i think he may have done some other work but that was mates rates, will be even cheaper if your doing it yourself.
