Energy makes them. Though I don't know if you can buy just individual pieces from them. If you were to order a set of rear arm bushings through them (fairly cheap) they should be included for both sides.

They include a bushing for the upper section of the knuckle that connects to the upper arm at the very least. Not sure if that is the piece that is worn out on yours or not.

edit: This was the Master kit that included it. Not sure if individual arm kits would.

A long day with a press at most. Don't forget to consider zerk fittings.

zerk fittings are always a must. 949 has the layouts so you dont have to mess with goofy placement. ill sandblast and paint also, so itll take a lil longer. might as well do it all right?

Mhmm. There are a couple places where zerks are difficult to place. Buy some 90* and 45* 6mm zerks at the hardware store too. Might help for clearing the subframe in a few areas. Pretty straight forward though.
