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!

hey had the same issue but mine was the lower ones. Idk if they're the same size bushing as the top but it took 30 min to fix....this is what I bought.

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

I seen that thread also... But I am in need of front uppers. They can't come soon enough... The squeak/clunk makes me not want to drive my car...

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.
