anti roll bar problem

The rubber on my anti roll bar has perished and is knocking

How much is a new part and are they easy to do or should i get garage to do it?

will i need to replace just the broken side or both?

Thanks in advance

roll bar bushings aren't much - £5-£10 tops...

bloody arse-ache of a job though - bleeding knuckles etc...

I got a 'round the corner - backstreet' garage to do it for me coz I really couldn't be bothered to spend a few hours swearing at my van, and just had my nails manicured!...50 quid jobs-a-goodun!

I had both drop-links fitted at my local dealer for free as they owed me a favour for the terrible last customer service I had

Result at last
