rear control arm bushing

Is a bushing for the control arm available? It would be nice to be able to simply replace that rather than the entire arm. TIA

If it is a ball joint and it is an OEM arm then no, but if it is one of the non ball joint bushings then there are press in replacements from various aftermarket sources.

Correct me if iím wrong (from experienced members). After searching many times, i noticed it is cheaper to buy whole arms than just replacing the bushing. Like TRW brand are cheaper for whole arm instead of buying a bushings.
Unlike with 914 which I owned atleast 6 before, the bushings is cheaper to just replace compare to 986.

AFAIK, TRW is the original manufacturer. I have not seen a price for pressing in a new bushing.
