    There's a How-2 titled 'Replace outer bush on rear upper control arms easily'. Best quality bushes are probably Lemförder part number 3390701 available from All German Parts or any Lemförder stockist.

    I've lost the receipt, but I think the Lemförder bushes were about £16 each plus VAT & carriage. They're expensive but cheaper ones are available; made by Delphi (TD554W I think), TRW and others.
