    Would hear noise from rear when hitting a bump. After inspecting drums I checked bushings to find trailing arm
    large bushing torn. Order replacement from Rockauto and installed myself.

    I was told I need the lower control arm bushing replaced "Compliance Bushing"

    Saw they were craked and I got them replaced... whole trailing arm, which is the best way to do it. It ensures the bushing is seated in the arm properly.
