I just wanted to see if anyone knows about these, will they fit an '07 ZX5 SES, and what kind of driving difference would they make?

One size for all....Your going to find, installing poly bushings in your front A-arms or best is the CFM tubular A-arms are going to make the biggest difference, if your rear ones aren't shot/wore out. If they're shot, just replace the whole control arms...

I was able to get my car up on a lift and check the rear trailing arm bushings connecting to the chassis, they are totally shot. Both of my back wheels have almost an inch and a half of back-and-forth play.

This actually surprised me, but rockauto is $37.91 to my door, after 3-4 days. Autozone has them for 18.99 a piece, and with my military discount it comes to around 38 bucks. I'm picking them up tomorrow morning. Hopefully it won't be too terribly difficult. I don't have a press...

Well I was trying to replace just the bushing but since I don't have access to a torch or a press, unless I can get the old arms off and take them to a shop to have the bushings pressed, then yeah I will have to get both new trailing arms.

Well yes but it's also almost 300 bucks. I tried to go the bushing only route since all I had was 37 dollars.

If money is tight you might try a salvage yard for a low mileage/good shape set to at least get you by. Most yards have interchangeability guides and you should take the part or some really good pix to make sure they match.
