So I have been searching online for the better part of the morning for a bushing that either doesn't exist or no one sells. I am not sure if it is considered a trailing arm or a rear control arm. But long story short, the right rear wheel on the wagon has taken on an excessive amount of negative camber, and I have traced it back to a dissolved bushing on the right rear arm. I have tried searching online for both a trailing arm bushing or a rear control arm bushing to no avail. Any suggestions or recommendations on where to get these? It is pretty much holding up my alignment, so I am hoping to get one by the end of the week. I will try to get a picture by tomorrow afternoon to better clarify. Thanks in advance. :)

I Came across that Problem Before: You must Change the Whole Part -the control Arm- that Holds the Bushing, `cos it is Part of it.

That`s Why you Couldn`t find it as Replacement Part.

Kind Regards.

I was afraid that might be the case. Thanks for the help. :)
