    I was planning to change the front ARB bushes on my 2004 (facelift) W203 Avantgarde sport SE estate. It has the sport pack (big brakes, slightly lowered etc) It appears that none of the usual suspects carry the replacement bushes. I rang the dealer today and was told I would have to replace the front bar as it is supplied complete with the bushes. So a cheap simple job has just turned into £85! Is this statement correct or does someone know of an alternative part number for just the bushes? For info the bar is ~22mm in diameter.

    No separate bushes shown on EPC for the 22mm bar

    All sport packed c/clk have the bushes bonded to the bar, is it creaking?
