    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

    Califab is only that had made uppers for the Sequoia. Don't think metal tech has an offering yet.

    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.

    Replaced both upper and lower arms in the rear with oem. No more squeaks.

    I think that is what I'm going to do.
