That's called "built in obsolescence", alias "money making". Why sell a $10
bush when you can sell a $60 arm...
Ford perfected it on the Escorts here; the tailshaft was one part (couldn't

I have never understood why the SD1 control arms must be replace as an
assembly when the basicly identical (but shorter) TR7/8 arms have
replaceable bushes. It ought to be possible to replace the bushes in the
SD1 arms assuming you could find bushes the proper size.

but I have been told that the LH track control arm is slightly over the
slack tolerance, so that it would be fine to replace it. I tried to find it
i.e. the LH/RH pair without success. The RH one does'nt seem to be an issue
but the LH one doesn't seem to be available anymore (Switzerland, Germany,
France, Rimmers, Holland Rover Club, etc...).
