    Ok I am new here, I'm not sure if this has been discussed but... my question is on a 3rd gen ford escort (1997 to be exact), where can I find rear control arms/bushings, and the rear toe arms/bushings? And I'm thinking not but would 2nd gens fit 3rd gen? I have searched for hours today trying to find them with no luck at all.. All I can find is trailing arm bushings (EVERYWHERE), but none of the rear control or toe arms or bushings.. PLEASE HELP GUYS!

    That would be great, however energy suspension does not carry the aforementioned bushings. In their master rebuild kit it comes with everything except the rear control arm and toe bar bushings.. SOOO FRUSTRATING!

    Oh, now I know which ones you are talking about.
    Energy Suspension 9.9108G 4-Bar Bushing
    Damn that came out huge during pasting. But these were the ones I used on my '96, but I had to shorten them.

    But will they work for a 97? A 96 is a different model year..
