Re: Renault Scenic - Rear Suspension Knock,Shock Absorbers Commonly Snapping

I've just replaced my front and back absorbers. Also with a new lower arm and tie-rods, and two other fittings which i cant recall what it is but it has to do with the steering/handling of my Scenic II 1.6. But still there is a knocking sound underneath whenever the car moves along an uneven road. My local mechanic who has done the replacement job then told me during re-inspection that the subframe bushing is already worn out and the subframe needs to be replaced. He showed me while the car was in the hoist, and when we moves the tyre there was movement at the subframe bushing. Question : while trying to keep the wallet slightly fatter from going thin, would i be able to replace just the bush only instead of getting a new subframe which is about GBP1K?
