    Thumbs down rear suspension worn

    hi i have a 03 vec sri and have noticed this last few days that the rear of the car has started to "fish about" on the road,mostly when going over potholes instead of just going over the car has started to sway from side to side
    So got home this afternoon and got it up on the ramps and checked it all out and after about 1 hour of taking various parts off eg shockers,anti roll bar bushes, found the top arm outer bushes worn but can only get movement in them when the cars on the ground (having visions of vec b i had replaced the bushes several times)i was just wondering if any one else has had this problem or may be to look out for it
    my car has 65000 on the clock,i thought vauxhall might have sorted this problem out after the vec b kept wearing these bushes out
    i'll have to go and price up new on monday as the motors out of warranty now
    hopefully not to pricey and not to hard to change will let you all know!!

    I replaced them twice on my old Vectra C . I could not buy just the bushes had to buy complete top arm . Vauxhall call them top stabiliser arms .But then it did have 109,000 miles on the clock .
