i took my el i6 to a tyre place to have a look at the rear of my car because when i swerve it feels like the rear end was fish tailing at first i thought it was from the nuts not tightend or it was my tyres but the bloke told me that when he rocks my car back/forwards that the diff was moving and that i need to replace the bushes (didnt tell me which 1) because when i had a look with the wheel off i can see 4 bushes on 1 side but i dont know which 1 to replace.
would any of you know which would be the main 1 to do or just replace the whole lot

cheers in advance

If your budget will allow, Go for Nolathane bushes.....The best money can buy.

Must agree with Revhead and Paulc, replace the bloody lot, if you can't afford nolathene use standard, if you're not working it real hard they do a good job. Certainly a lot better/safer than stuffed ones.

Kovac,
Couldn't agree more, point I/we were trying to make was when it comes to bushes, like bearings & pads, they should normally be replaced as a set. ie usually if one's gone the others are about to go. BTW that standard crap has lasted abt 300k km on our EB2 and is about to get nolas with the new LSD this week. hope they last as long. LOL

With that amount of k's I'd definatley replace all the bushes, it's a lot of k's if theyre still the original ones. May be worth checking the front as well. Go with nolathane if you can the car will feell better than new on the road.
