I have to replace the rear bush on the front suspension wishbone, but I find it incredible that the car has to be half dismantled to get at the two bolts which hold the anti roll bar bush housing to the holder for the rear bush. Is it entirely necessary to drop the subframe, or can the old bush be removed in situ, without removing the holder from the car? Will an obstruction spanner work? What annoys me is that the bolts could have been just as effective if fitted upside down, with the anti roll bar bush holder being the threaded part, and the bolts just passing through the rear bush holder, which could then be removed by simply dropping the bolts out. Grrr!
