Rear Lower Control Arm help

Hello,

I tried searching the forums but was not able to come up with anything.
I have a 2002 RHD Evo 7, the local shop here is telling me that there is play in the rear lower control arms and one rear lateral link.

Performance shops seem to be having a very hard time locating these parts to bring in for replacement.. any tips as to who makes or sells these?

Thanks!

You can replace them with solid bushings but these cars have spherical bushings so going solid is like a down grade. If you can afford it and if they are available get the bushings from local dealer and press them.

So to clarify, you don't have to replace the arms, just the bushings themselves?
