rear trailing arm bush wow is me

when i got the car both side bushs where totalled , so replaced both , at last years test i had to replace a shocker and noticed once again that the drivers side bush was gone again , so decided to replace it , found a guy on fleabay selling nre old stock , and sure enough today the new bush appears complete wit a little piece of paper with fitting instructions lol.
well the first time i did them both saides too a total of may be 2 or 3 hours taking my time and not hurrying , so i though well 1 side to do should be a nice easy hour taking my time.
yeah right 7 hours later i finished
due to break pipe connects and ended up having to buy a new rubber flexi .
just hoping the other side last a long time lol , will add that both sides where from different manufacturers due to the shop only having 2 in stock the first time i changed them , and damn if i can rememebr which side i fitted which lol.

well and after all that yesterday went shopping and some one hit the rear of the car and pushed the bumper back 1/2 inch and over to the passenger side 1/4 of an inch and drove off.

i wasnt in the car i was shopping so dont even know who it was , how ever i know one of the people who work where it happened and they are going to look into getting hold of the camera footage for me, so hoping they had a camera facing that way at the time .

That sucks mate. My car was keyed a few months ago just down the road from me. The person who lived there kindly downloaded their CCTV but all it shows is 2 people I have never seen before and prob won't ever see again walking along the side of my car scratching it just because they could I guess.
People a ***** mate, I hope you get it sorted soon.
