I have a horrible squeaking coming from my driver side rear suspension. I think some of the bushings are shot. Is it possible to just replace the bushings or do I need to replace the entire suspension?

It is very possible to just do the rear bushings, it is also much much less costly to replace the bushings instead of the control arms. I just created a cart with all the rear control arm bushings: click here (http://www.ecstuning.com/Cart/?add1=1596840&qty1=2&add2=6630&qty2=4&add3=6625&qty3=2&add4=1844092&qty4=4&add5=12030&qty5=4&utm_source=CArmbruster&utm_medium=email&utm_content=link2cart&salesrep=CArmbruster) to see every bushing.

If you only need one side, divide that cart by two on each of the items. To fit them you shouldn't need anything special except some elbow grease. A vice would be a good asset for this. At worst you can pop the control arm out and take it with your new bushings to an auto shop and they'd press them in for a little fee, usually 10-20 bucks.
