Yeah dude, honestly you can replace JUST the bushes... But I garentee you will need to replace the rods due to the ball joint before the bushes go again, so better and cheaper to replace the whole thing. They are probably already on the fritz anyway :D

WOAH! Ok. You should check the temperature of your front right window. That might have been the problem. Should be 23 degrees C

Pins I picked up for $89 dollars from Repco (They are usually $140), bushes I picked up for $24.

Yeah, I suppose you can cook bacon with it. But if you do that, make sure you do the whole procedure with a hat on.

I just completed this today. what a easy job to do thanks to this write up. I got my complete kit off ebay for $64 included postage. It come with pins and bushes.
One question tho. did you grease the rubbers at all? None was supplied in the kit so i didn't. Its just the old ones seem to have some old white grease looking **** on them thats all.???

Vt and Vx are diffrent.
The Vx uses a ball joint, Where as the Vt uses bushes on top and bottom

Anyone who read's this, make sure you get the correct part, Now you know Vt & Vx are diffrent.

velcorchicken: Throw them up on ebay, Im sure you can recoop some $$
