Q: I can't find replacement control arm bushings, any thoughs?

asked by on

I want to replace the rear control arm and knuckle bushings on my 96 Eldo. I can find a variety of replacement parts for the knuckle bushings and nothing for the upper and lower rear control arm bushings. The people at the parts stores have no idea what to tell me, so I'm hoping a mechanic can help me figure this out. Thanks a bunch!
