    I heard a clunk in the rear going over a bump. Thought it was a bad shock
    but it turned out to be a worn lower control arm outer bushing. I called two
    parts dealers and they have no listing for bushings. Before I go to Saturn
    parts, does anybody have information on the availability of these? Was
    hoping to just replace the one that was gone. My experience with Saturn is
    that you have to buy much more than you actually want.

    Took the car in to my friend's garage. He confirmed that the lower control
    arm outboard bushing was bad. The part was ordered from Saturn and wheel was
    disassembled and ready to go when the part arrived.
    Unfortunately, Saturn sent a part that did not fit (appeared to be the
    inboard control arm bushing).

    Got the car back today from the shop. The bushings that Saturn parts sent
    WERE correct and just looked wrong for some reason. Old one pressed out of
    the trailing arm knuckle and new one pressed in. Wheel is now nice and solid
    again - no camber wobble. Turns are nice and crisp - no under steer. Got it
    passed NY State inspection and all good.
