My Ride: 1999-323i
I did my cars's rear bushes and it took about 2 hours total, including setting out and cleaning up. An easy job on ramps with the handbrake on and a brick for a chock under each rear wheel. No a trick, use dishwash soap to lubricate the rubber and shaft before fitting new bushes...then they slide on easy and soap doesn't damage the rubber as a lube. Also, don't use a puller to get of old bush, just screw rip the mounting bracket off as they are damaged anyway...then cut off the remainder on the shaft with hack saw...easy, took just a couple of minutes for each!

Car drives so tight now in braking and steering!
1999-323i Steel Grey, black leather, CD stacker, tinted windows, reversing radar, sunroof and Pirellis on M-Sport 17" alloys, 245 mm wide on rear and 225 mm wide on front.
