Refer to this Post: 2016 Rear Knuckle bushing
Use 'Search Community' above to find more Posts.
I have unfortunately I can't get any of the bushing kits suggested and the over sized ones are not what I need I need the odd one on the knuckle and their wasn't a suggested fix for that... I would leave it as it's not wearing tires but unfortunately here in novascotia we have motor vehicle inspections which they put a sticker on the windshield of your car saying it's safe for the road. This bushing being worn out won't pass this inspection dealing the vehicle unfit for our roads

Yes I did unfortunately I can not get them locally if I remember post 90 takes me to a website which I contacted and I can only buy from a vendor but I have found a part number through napa and they carry these ones in stock but the top bushing needs washers added as they are more narow for some reason.thank you for everyones help

are you sure? I just got my inspection (MA) & it wasn't an issue
are you sure what you think is a problem isn't something else? meaning who diagnosed the issue? if your tires aren't wearing irregularly what makes you think you need the knuckles bushings? what symptom(s) do you have?

I have play in my rear wheels and I diagnosed it myself before taking it for a pre mvi and the shop I took it to confirmed the rear knuckle bushings are toast mainly the lower one closer to the front of the vehicle they will not pass any car with worn bushings

right, exactly, that's why I mentioned it. but I believe MA checks for loose wheels, like from ball joints?
maybe they didn't check my right rear, or mine isn't loose enough to wobble? is that what yours is doing? my only symptom is uneven tire wear on 1 wheel
