We change them on just about every car that comes into our shop.
I wouldn't use factory bushings, They will just move again. use urethane bushings.

Mine did the same thing at about 25K, or at least that's when I noticed it, eventually they got bad enough the rear end became sloppy under hard acceleration and or braking. I have an extra set of factory bushing and the special tool for installing if you would like I can sell the bushings and loan the tool.

Yeah 37k on the car, just starting to notice under hard braking.

Considering upgrading, but would take you up on the tool offer. Send me a pm and we can work something out.

So basically I want to go on one last fall drive maybe 120 highway and 100 back roads.

Is the car safe for that?

You will be good for 120 Mls, I let mine go for thousands of miles before I changed them.....eventually the squeaking from metal on metal contact got to me.

I don't know why it does not resize itself. Mine always do when I post them here. I sure don't do anything special.

At 75k Mls I did the total suspension refresh kit from Sector 111, new shocks and springs, DBA rotors with padig blues at the same time. A ton of work but the car feels precise and new again...well worth all the banged up body parts.
