VW POLO 9N3 Lower Arm Bushes

Post by Sonic70 »

Just had MOT and lower arm rear bushes need replacing. Garage wants to replace the lower arms and the wishbone suspension brackets(think thats what they are called) which contain the bushes. My question is does all this need replacing or can be just replace the bushes?
Thanks All

You dont need to change the arms or support brackets ,just the rear bushes only they are cheap to buy just the labour costs involved.

if your inclined you can buy a cheap tool to remove them and refit them look online for this

Is it best to fit new vw bushes or can you get better aftermarket ones?
