2002 S-Type: rear upper control arm bushings..new ones are approx…

I have a 2002 S-Type...
I have a 2002 S-Type 3.0 and I'm told that the rear upper control arm bushings are shot and new ones are approx. $700 each as they only sell the whole control arm. With labor, this could cost almost what the car is worth! I'd like to inquire about the possibility of getting just the bushings somewhere, if possible, or getting salvage parts. I was wondering what years are interchangeable with the 2002 as they all appear almost identical. My car looks and runs great but sounds like an old pickup truck when it goes down the road! Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX - Navarre,FL

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Yes this is correct that the bushings are not seperate on these upper arms so the complete arm will need to be replaced. You can to source a used part as they are the same for all S types 2000-2008.
