It looks like Citroen don't list the rear bush separately, they seem to be available aftermarket though.
I got a set of Delphi wishbones for my X7 a couple of years ago for under £100 each so i wouldnt even bother with the genuine stuff or even messing about doing the bushes seperatley
3523AQ FRONT TRIANGLE-ARM WISHBN BUSH £23.30 inc vat

1682731380 E:SUSPENSION WISHBONE PSA £121.67 inc vat (aftermarket alternative)

9666243980 WISHBONE FRONT £397.38 inc vat

It might be worth taking a look on the GSF website, after signing up for their VIP system. I got a pair of wishbones for my C5 facelift for around £135 (including VAT).

Thanks very much, I am sure the rear ones are available, I will look at aftermarket stuff, I hate spending money and throwing away servicable parts

The main thing (if you are going to just replace the bushes) is to get them lined up properly. If you don't, the bushes will be incorrectly 'loaded' and fail quite quickly.

Thanks very much for that info, I will search local motor factors Monday

If, however, you were to get the complete wishbone the bushes (assuming the wishbones are from a reputable supplier) will have been correctly fitted.

When I had to replace the wishbones on my Xantia (I was doing this at Citronuts' location) he told me to just secure them in place while the car was raised, lower her down to her normal ride height, wait 5 minutes (to allow everything to settle down into their natural position), and then tighten up the various bolts to their correct torque. That way all of the bushes will (when the height is at the normal position) effectively be at rest, so should have a long working life.

Job done, Replaced all wishbone bushes and the upper suspension bushes, sourced through a local motor factor for 125 euros, and 8 hours of graft for me.
