    rolleyes 2005 upper, outer, rear suspension rose bush

    Hi All,
    Like many vectra owners I need to replace the outer upper rose suspension bushes from the banana arm on a vectra C 2005. I can get the bushes or the whole arms for a reasonable cost. Looking at the job, it appears easier to change the outer bushes without removing the banana arm. It seems I need to do a fair bit of dismantling if I want to change the whole arm. Has anyone done this job themselves? (please only respond if you have personally got your hands dirty doing this). I'm wondering if it is possible to change the banana without partially dropping the rear subframe? If it is necessary to remove the subframe then I would like to change the bushes in situ. Does anyone know if the vectra B bush removal tools are suitable?
    Thanks in advance for your advice.
    Keith

    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : SRi

    Engine : 150

    Year : 05

    Mileage : 74000

    Default

    access is a little tight but no need at all to partially or fully drop the rear subframe. At a nice pace allow 1 hour per side.
    Plasma's Tech2 services are now partially open and able to provide services
