Default 98 Bonneville Rear Suspension Bushings

Well, having tried all sorts of spray lubricants on the lower rear control arm bushings and having turned the stereo up as far as I can stand it, it looks like I will have to bite the bullet and change out the control arm bushings.

Any words of wisdom out there from anyone who'* done the job?

Pain in the azz! You are going to need to get the car up high enough to get a floor jack under the control arm so when you pop the ball joint on the rear knuckle the coil spring doesnt fly out at you. The last one I did I had to cut the mounting botls out because the were rusted right in. So soaking them in some PB BLaster the day before would be a good idea. Good Luck!!
