I'm a new member to these forums and I'm looking for some help/advice with regards to replacing the rear axle control arm bushings on my 2009 Pontiac Vibe (hatchback).
Both of the rear bushings on my vibe have developed cracks/tears and my mechanic is unable to source replacement parts locally (South Western Ontario) and has suggested I try to locate the parts myself online.
The specific part I'm looking for is GM part #19184265 - https://www.gmpartsgiant.com/parts/gm-b ... 84265.html
. (Part #2 in the below image).
I have not been able to find this part in stock at any of the online retailers. Several sites list the part as available but when I have contacted the seller, I've been informed the part is discontinued and not available.
In lieu of finding a GM replacement part, I am wondering if I could use the bushings from a 2009 Toyota Matrix - https://parts.olathetoyota.com/oem-part ... dhcw%3D%3D
. (part #2 in the below image).
Before I spend the money and purchase the Toyota parts, I was wondering if anyone here had success swapping these 2 parts? Alternatively, is anyone aware of an online retailer where I can purchase the GM part #19184265?
Thank you in advance for any help/suggestions you may be able to provide.
