    Goodness me, noise from drivers side suspension, creaking over bumps, rattling sound very annoying. Replace wishbone, garage says the bush comes on it, not in 2 parts.

    £274 to replace (not dealer), ouch.

    Two bushes and a ball joint Id imagine - and it will be the back one thats worn. I would think the arm would be in the £70 region which is very reasonable.
    Its best to do this job with the car on a ramp, and to compress the suspension too.
    You can always ask around if the labour is a bit high....sounds like a Kwik Fit price :whistle:
    John :)
    I’ll just edit - check the other side too.

    Other side was done 2 years ago, mileage 130k, issue is i don't have the time to take it to different mechanics as need it for work, was looking to change it to a lower mileage model, may as well keep it until next year.
