    Default rear bushes

    Had both the rear suspension arms and front o/s/wisbone replaced on my car (03 plate 2.2 Dti Sri) at 48k because they were banging like ******y, at the time I didn't even think about contacting the dealer for a warranty repair as I assumed they wouldn't be covered, "wear & tear etc etc " so I shelled out the £370 to get the job done myself ( using genuine parts, of course ).
    The annoying part is that after 10k the rears are banging again...
    Is there a known weakness on these parts ?, or can I get heavier duty ones
    I'm a taxi driver & the car gets tested every 6 months, so you can imagine spending £3- 400 every time it's tested is a bit much !!!

    Thanks, Tony.

    All I can say it sounds like is when going over a slightly bumpy road is like loads of heavy dull thuds...
    When I had them last done the car was so much quieter afterwards...
