Default control arm bushings

I've had a loud squeak from the rear of my v. Had the car put on a lift, and the dealership said it was the right rear upper control arm bushing. Dealership said gm requires them to replace whole arm. So i Googled the bushing and found a thread on CF (Im not a member) from about 2 yrs ago stating creative steel could possibly make some for our cars. I emailed CS about bushings, and they said they don't have them yet but maybe in a month or so...

If any of you fellas are members of CF, and/or have intimate knowledge of this deal, could someone please drop me a line as soon as these are made and ready for sale..

I will check back with CS in a month or so myself, but i have been known to have a small case or c.r.s. at times. Lol.

Thanks guys!

Those are for the trailing arms, not the control arms (upper or lower).

Spoke with creative steel like 2 days ago about this. They said it should be about another month. They are working on a driveshaft coupler as well.
