G'day people;

I had Pedders do their 28-point suspension check on my EB2 this morning, and they came back with a few bushes that either need replacing, or a virtually non-existant! Lol.

Obviously, I'm not going to get Pedders to perform the repairs, as their quote was over $1600.

The bushes that need replacing are as follows:

1. Front lower bushes (quoted $270);
2. Rear upper bushes (quoted $130);
3. Rear lower bushes (quoted $150);
4. Rear sway-bar bushes (quoted $60); and
5. Rear lateral arm bushes (quoted $60).

The quotes listed above are for parts only (totalling $670). The total cost of the labour required to install these parts is $660.

Where would be the best & cheapest place to obtain these parts?

Also, what is the degree of difficulty for replacing each of these myself? Or would it be recomended that I pay a mechanic to fit them?

Many thanks in advance,
