Question Dodgy Suspension Rubbers

Does anyone who has a 3drStilo know about the rubber bushes on the rear axle, where the axle joins the chassis, if they can be replaced solely, or if the whole axle needs to be replaced?? We took the car over the pit to change the rear shocks and while the usual inspection was taking place, I noticed the drivers side bush was not the same (seemed to have a rubber bit missing?? ) The car has been giving a slight lurch to the side, especially when driving over a bump or manhole cover with the passengers side wheels?? Any ideas? I thought it was the shocks, but having only changed the rear shocks and not all four, the handling is still not the same as it was. The car was lowered on standard shocks, not ideal I know, but no probs initially. Only a year later I get the twitchies and wobbles. Shocks and/or faulty bushes??. When the rubber bushes had done on the Punto we used to have, it was the whole trailing arm we needed. I find it hard Fiat would have me buy a whole new axle for a simple rubber bush? Oh and does anyone know how to reset the service counter? unfortunately I am not on good terms with my local Fiat, (reasons I wish to forget ), so I am pretty much going it alone.

Unhappy Re: Dodgy Suspension Rubbers

You could bung this post in with mine about the rear bushes - sounds exactly the same But, according to Fiat, there's no problem with the bushes at all. Odd that.
