Rear susp. bushings?

I have a bad suspension bushing in the right rear trailing arm of my 92 DX hatch. Some mechanic was telling me I need to replace the trailing arm, which sounded like BS to me. Can the bushing not be pressed out and replaced?

get the master kit. might be a little extra but you save $$ in the long run if any other bushings were to go out. my front LCA bushings were shot and when the car was jacked up i can move the wheels in and out. since i was bringing it into the shop to get it fixed i got them to do the back anyways because i know the back would eventually go. i bought the kit not knowing that it was missing the inner lca bushing and i had to get a seperate kit that came with all this other stuff. so i just got them to replace all the bushings there. it was a good fix because now the car is stiffer with the polyurethane bushings in.

I can't use Urethane, because I'm prepping the car to run H-stock in solo-2. But maybe I can find an OE replacement set for most, if not all of the bushings?

Marsh: btw welcome late preluder to the civic side

hehe

as far as bushings, if your a member you can get a good deal on OE bushings from Parkway, they will hook you up well and you could do all 6 of them, or maybe even buy a new LCA for cheaper with all new bushings in it

I'm not sure what your deal with Parkway is, but I know the parts manager at London Honda and he can get me Honda parts at a good price. I was wondering more if there is a cheap aftermarket source. Like NAPA?

napa might carry them but most likely they will send you to honda. I remember calling napa last year about bushings and they said they don't have them and call honda

I think your options are just OEM and ES or another urethane company
