I just replaced the rear shocks in my 07 TB LT

I noticed the sway bar links were shot so I ordered a new pair.

I was wondering about replacing the control arm bushings while I’m doing all that. I did the fronts (sway links, ball joints, all bushings) last year. I didn’t get the pry bar out on the rears yet but if the state of the fronts was any indication the rears will need doing too.

I searched; google, trailvoy, rockauto - for info on parts but could not find any mention.

Can anyone point me in the right direction, or tell me the correct part name, to be searching for.

Thanks

So all I can find while searching is this set from 1aauto of replacement control arms.

https://www.1aauto.com/control-arm/i/1asfk04914?f=1115374&y=2007

Is this a case of the bushings being too hard to replace? Why are the individual bushings so hard to find?

Has anyone pressed the bushings in the rear, or have you just swapped out the whole arm?

Thanks

I think you have to get the whole unit. Don't remember anyone just pressing the bushings in out and in.

Okay. That makes sense I guess. They’re pretty heavy looking bushings, and for the cost it’s probably not worth the effort

Thanks
