I recently took my ka for its mot at halfords, when i got it back it came with an mot advice list which said i need to replace the 'front lower arm bushes'. Is this the bushes that join the lower wishbone suspension to the subframe? Can i buy these on there own or is is it best to replace the lower wishbone arm at the same time?

I would be greatful if someone could help me.

Thanks

you can replace these bushes but you might be just as cheap/easy to replace the full wishbone which will also have a new ball joint
