    I suppose it depends on time and money.

    I've known garages say they'll replace the bushes, but the only question is by the time the arm is removed how long will it take the remove the bushes, you could have fitted the new arm by then.

    The other thing is the bushes are about £32 for four, the arms are about £60.

    I'd like to know myself as I've thought about having the arms done on mine.

    In short just change the whole arm, you could change one bush but then 3 months down the line have to change another or a ball joint.

    Just as well to fit a new one since the wishbone is already off
