I am thinking of overhauling the rear suspension bushings on my ’06 S type. This is just a precautionary measure, the car handles well enough but it now is 11yrs. old and is approaching 86K miles.

I have sourced a complete set of second hand upper and lower wishbones, but would like some advice before attempting the re-bush job.
I haven’t sourced the replacement bushes as yet as I can’t make my mind up whether to go for polyurethane bushes or originals style ones.

I prefer a quiet, smooth ride to a sportier one, and wondered if the polyurethane would be a tad ‘harsher’

As I don’t have a press, would it be feasible to remove and replace bushes just using all threaded rod?
I could possibly get access to a press by paying a visit to a local mechanic but prefer to do the job in my own garage.

Any and all comments, advice etc. warmly appreciated.

Must read the relevant section of the forum now!

Should be Ok, Ed China did it on one of the wheeler dealer cars the other week. Good luck.
