would have to replace them and see, but if that's the case could explain why mine feels arse end happy but more likely worn bushes as remember them being there

I had my diff out yesterday and although it's a pretty easy job it does take a while. Getting the bush in might be a bit of a pain though, it's fairly tight under there. A nice puller might do it though, with some sort of plate to spread the load over the entire bush as your wind it in.
