    Question 1995 STS Rear Knuckle Upper Bushings

    Hi All.
    I need to know where I can find rear knuckle upper bushings to connect to the rear upper control arms/wish bones.
    Knuckle replacement from GM is more than the value of the car.
    I am capable of replacing them if only I could find the proper bushings!
    This seems like a difficult one. I'd like to hear from anyone that may have a line on these bushings.

    I'm not to sure but i think we are looking for the same part. I have a 95 sts, just had the arnott passive system installed and they said i have bad bushings in the rear. Bad thing is they are in a spindal and you must replace the whole dang thing....big suprise...490 bucks a piece through GM. i refuse to pay that much heh. i need some cheap aftermarket one's. Any help would be great.

    I also replaced the rear air suspension system, but I used Strutmasters. I am VERY pleased so far. Found the bushing problem after that.
    Car has to be on a suspension hoist to check it out; I was using a frame hoist and the problem eluded me.
    Now the car requires a safety check and it will not pass in this condition.
    3lung: if I find them I will let you know!! Plz do the same if you happen to find them.

    Re: 1995 STS Rear Knuckle Upper Bushings

    Hi bschelle; that seems like a wonderful price for the rear knuckles on your DeVille; it would be wonderful if they fit...this is something I am unsure of, not having access to GM's little computer...seems to me GM wants to gouge the people they think can afford the parts.
    If I knew that comfort Caddy parts would fit in with the Northstar suspension, I'd order the parts right away.
    I've had some connection with aftermarket suspension/bushing houses, and I'm coming up dry.
    The STS is developing a dry knocking noise from the rear now which is not attributable to the strutmaster replacement struts.
    I need replacement bushings!

    Re: 1995 STS Rear Knuckle Upper Bushings

    Were you able to find the bushings anywhere? - I just got a call from my shop giving me the bad news---almost 500 apiece!?! I don't think so. Anyone have experience replacing these units? Is it a driveway job?

    Thanks!!

    Hello, I just wanted to say how grateful I am to your company... as those lovely folks over at Caddie don't carry them as a replacement part…… Your help when I needed it via phone was immediate and accurate. You set the bar for outstanding customer service.

    yea he is a real piece of work (lsapllc) steals all my key words and all my adds because he can't think of any him self call me unethical when he goes around telling everyone tha these bushings is not the only part he sells when in fact they are ,says he has paten pending on some washers he uses to keep the bushings from fallins out and rattling ,steals all my slogans for ebay adds
    and you guys want to do buisness with him wait till you have a problem and he tells you that no refund case your knuckle is shot and by the way shaving is for your face not automotive bushings emails himself to say polyurethane bushings squeak when in fact they don't
