I took my car for a suspension inspection this morning, I’ve been told that the “front lower control arm rear bushes are badly torn”.
Is this the wishbone and what bush is it...a photo would be good to guide me in finding it...or a drawing Thumbs up
Thanks peeps.

Yeha mate it will be let me find a photo. Easiest is to buy some new wishbones which are a decent make as they are quite inexpensive. Get the P bushes (front) and hubs done at the same time then too nice and easy.

I think he means replace the balljoints too...?

The bush circled in the picture is the front bush. The rear one is the P bush at the bottom of the picture.

Haha your right. I havent looked under my car for quite a while now...

Personally id be tempted to do the ball joints while there as well because why not they are probably old anyway and if they oval the hub when f**ked right?

I did the p bush on the offside this morning, it all came apart easy, the new bush went on ok...what a pain to get it back together though 🤬 I didn’t bother with the near side but thankfully it doesn’t really need doing.
