With the powers of Google......I hear by resurrect the thread from the dead lol

As I have to replace my bushes.........but wonder why they are different types....some at £4.95 seem to be the rubber part only and come with two metal inserts .....then some at £6.99 have the metal sleeve on the outside and nothing else....?

Right been down the callycave for a couple of hours....used my trolly jack to press out the remainder of the old bush



came out in three parts....well fell apart more like.



Dont ya just love WD40 lol



The new bush....





And a pic of my hole lol  :twisted:



Cleaned up and painted....



A bit of copper grease to help it in...



Pushed home with a bit of wood and trolley jack..



So job done.......naa still can not get the main bolt to locate right...I`ll have another go asap....mabe even drop the whole lot.As you can see the hole for the bolt is off centre......



So if i drag the car out and turn it around n push it back in so the rear end is near the garage door I`ll get better access etc.

Hi, i have a question, can you tell me if someone tried to use Opel omega rear bush (the big ones) into a Opel Calibra? I want to know because Opel Omega rear bushes are less expensive than those from Calibra. These bushes looks similar to me. Thank you!
