T4 Post Icon Upper wishbones knocking.

Anyone who has changed these give me some advice please.
I have posted this in suspension section but no answer as yet.
Do I need to replace any bolts or nuts or can the originals be used?
That's all. Thanks guys.

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today.
If you like it, you can do it again tomorrow!

Hi mate, i removed the wishbone all together and replaced all the bushes, I marked their position on the arm (check with the new ones) then used heat to remove them. I spent some time cleaning the holes out so the bushes wouldn't snag on any lumps etc. Then with the help of a large vice and some washers and big sockets I pressed them in. use some very liquid as lube and just go steady ensuring they are square! Alternatively remove and clean up then take to your local garage and get them to press them in for you? Some were easy others not so!

Thanks for replying but did you need to replace any bolts or did you reuse the originals?
