Wishbone bushings replacement

    Hi, I'm getting a couple of bushings replaced (front L&R) on foot of a nct visual fail. Anything else I should consider? What I mean is, does this automatically mean anything else has to be adjusted like - alignment/tracking etc. The side slip test is marked N/D and I presume will be done on retest.

    Thanks

    Put decent bushes into it, not the cheapest you can buy. What car is it and someone will recommend a good brand.

    Thanks folks. Got sorted today. Don't know the make he used but he wouldn't use junk. I saw the really bad one and it was pretty shot although there was no knocking, handling issues which I thought was a bit odd.

    I'm aware of not using cheap parts (last job done I supplied the T-belt/w-p kit 'continental')

    I got full 4w alignment elsewhere with an excellent job done for 40 quid. It defo needed doing.

    Hi everyone I am just looking for some advice please. Can a 4 wheel alignment be done properly in 30 minutes? I’m waiting to book an alignment and have been told by one place it should take 2 hours to be done properly and another place said it can be done in 30 minutes for a lot less money. Unsure what to do.

    Retest done today

    Side-slip/alignment test : Front axle 0.0m/Km

    Don't think it gets any better than that 🙂
