Rear Lower Control Arm Bushings

I'm trying to find some rear lower control arm bushings for my 03 sedan. I am particularly looking for the one that connects to the rear wheel. I've been told by the parts stores this is a dealer item and dealer tells me I have to buy the whole control arm.

Anyone know what the scoop is on getting these?

I've heard of people burning out rubber bushings on silent block bushes and using a press to replace them with poly ones. this is a massive adventure though.

your only bet is poly if you want to replace them. OE ones are sold as a whole arm. Id personally just get a whole arm from MIKE. It can be had for under 50 bucks iirc.
