So I am getting squeaks from the rear and have narrowed it down to the rear trailing arm bushings (~130k miles) . I've scoured ebay and Amazon and can't find any viable options besides salvaged parts from ebay. Anybody replace theirs? Most likely want to replace the existing arm

Toyota parts has oem trailing arms with bushings. They dont have the bushings listed separately. $200 for each. Yikes

What is the best way to determine that they are bad? Keep hearing rattles when going over bumps sounds like it is in the rear. Driving me nuts!!

pull them out. Insert big, 1/4" screw driver into the bushing and try and flex it. If you can flex it by hand, they're done.
