Agreed pass & advise, unless they are near metal to metal, those bushes don't give much away even though fatigued.

I just wanted to get your opinions on the front wishbone rear bushes on a mk2 focus.

I'm sure you know the ones I mean, they tend to deteriorate and the inner rubber around the wishbone separates from the outer rubber of the hush bonded to the bush housing bolted to the sub frame.

My employer I feel is pushing me to fail them (he can stuff it, my license my decision)
On a service I would certainly up sell them. I must admit the shaker plates on our new OPTL do show some more movement than a shake of the wheel by hand. But having been hauled up in an appeal decision before (which nothing came of i might add) I'm not willing to "fail for the sale" unless they are near metal to metal I would rather pass and advise.

Anywho, I just wanted to know the views of some more respected testers on the matter.

Thanks

Rick
