Okay, I might buy a set of bushes already mounted in the housings and try installing them myself. I found some on eBay for about $80 delivered from the USA. I figure if I put the new bushes in exactly the same position as the old ones that 30 minutes shouldn't be that critical.
Today I installed the new steering wheel and the new centre console with armrest. If it wasn't for the crappy seat covers and front door trims it would be looking pretty good in there. The car also got a wash and wax.
