I keep seeing PU bushings on sale everywhere, but it seems to be difficult to find the OEM ones. Any place that still has them ?
I would prefer my car to ride silent and smooth like a new car, handling does not matter to me .
Also Is the TEMS shocks upper mounting still available ?

I had a look at the diagram for the front lower arm, and it seems that the inner bushes cannot be changed, heck they dont even have a part number. So that means if these inner bushes are screwed , I have to buy a new arm ?

Not all the bushings in the MK3 are intended to be changed by themselves. Toyota only offered many bushings as a part of a larger assembly.

Looks like the upper A arms are avaialbe and are around $400 online - each.

Amazon shows the lower arm as available, but I'm not sure if that's real.

Rear Upper A-arm:

There are a bunch of other parts. Good luck. If you can afford that price tag more power to you - that's awesome. I agree with keeping many things OEM - the MK3 was meant to ride smoooooth.

Good luck. Please let me know how it goes. I'll be doing my own bushing work on my 91 soon.

I am just considering it now. I probably wont do it this year. I only hear very little noise on super bad roads, otherwise its quiet on the highway. I also may be able to get them locally instead from the US.

The upper arms came with bushings but also they were available by themselves at one point, discontinued now. There are cardone and other aftermarket upper arms available with bushings. Or the other option is energy, superpro ect for poly bushings.

You are correct on the lower arms, the bushing are bonded and pressed in and the entire arm is meant to be replaced. Your only option there is new from Toyota, IIRC they were $240ish each if not discontinued. There are also aftermarket options from whiteline and superpro for these bushings.

For the subframes, Piratetip on here makes a nice front set and superpro makes a nice rear. OEM are no longer availible
