Re: Rear upper Controll Arm bushings

I didnīt hear about a complete A-arm with poly bushings yet. But you can buy poly bushings and put them in yourself. One of the members here did it, but i never heard about the results. I changed the bushings with the same type. First i used Omix ada, but the quality is very bad, they only lasted a month. Then i installed Dorman and they are still doing fine (around 30.000 km now)
An other member installed a complete new a-arm with ball ends. Do a search for a-arm or upper control arm, you probably will find some more info.

Just say no to Omix. I ended up using modified Raybestos. See my write up....

Re: Rear upper Controll Arm bushings

I just bought the rear upper A-arm (we call it the boomerang) from Amazon.com and it had bushings already installed. I ordered a new Mopar ball joint to install at the same time. Saved a ton of money and hassle this way. Been on and off road and haven't had any trouble with it at all since. I think it was Omix brand.
