I test drove an EA Spack 5 speed with worn bushes, everytime you let the clutch out it felt like the diff was jumping to the side. Though you might not be able to feel that with the auto.

Re: XR6 - Rear Trailing arm Bushes

Upper or lower?
you can jack the rear up and take the wheel off, thst way you can see the trailing arms.
i got a quote last week to get my upper arms replaced, it was $130 including fitting, thats for a change over arm.
The lower ones where done two years ago, or about $200.

Re: XR6 - Rear Trailing arm Bushes

im not exactly sure what trailing arms bushes are stuffed, my car just seems to feel as if the diff is gonna fall out when i accelerate or decelerate, it also has a clunk when i back off then put my foot back on.
