Rear knuckle bushing part number or availability?

Both my rear knuckle bushings have their boots damaged and I'm trying to see if I can get the bushings separate from the knuckle.

Looking to see if I can find a place to buy #3 part or for a part number. I'm hoping it can be found without buying two new knuckles.

I do see BMR has some bearing kits which I believe their 3rd one would work for me as well. I'm not 100% sure on that though if it's the same piece I need to replace or not, if I decide to go with the BMR bearing kit though I'll contact them and confirm. Though at that point I feel like buying 2 new knuckles would be similar in price.

I'm sitting at 97k miles so maybe new knuckles would be better for long term as the other bushings may give problems or maybe I'm thinking too much into it. Any advice or help would be appreciated.

Is that the bushing in the toe rod? I have yet to see them sold separately anywhere. I know the #2 bushings are available as spherical bearings, but #3 I was planning on eventually just replacing the toe rod as an entire piece.

I know this doesn't help with getting just a bushing, I'm curious what you end up going with, I've slowly been upgrading all my suspension.

Nah, the bushing in the toe arm is one piece already in the tow arm photo, the bushing Iím talking about is apart of the knuckle itself. Itís the lowest most bushing that goes to the lower control arm itself

Hereís 2 pics that hopefully clear up the bushing in question

The toe arm screws into the knuckle entirety, you can just replace with a aftermarket toe arm. BMR probably the most popular, I replaced mine to Megan racing (blue) arms since they were cheap at a local deal and I needed to replace one anyways

We offer a bearing kit to replace all the bushings in the rear knuckle. Let me know if I can help you with anything.

The lower control arm has a mono ball already installed on the hub side. The other 3 arms have bushings.

That definitely would solve my problem but holy pricetag Batman! Lol I see now though to replace all the bushings with aftermarket would be around that price, Iíll have to contact SPL and ask if they offer just the one I need to replace for the time being. I appreciate the link referral though!

Iíll PM you, if thereís a way to get just a pair of the bushings that I need to replace then Iíll probably get those and have a shop install them

I installed those SPL bearings (impulse buy), those are #2 in that diagram in your first post. Not exactly an easy project. They're on the upper control arm and the trailing arms.
