Where can I find the Rear Trailing Arm Bushings?

I have a 2009 Fit Sport and trying to find the Rear Trailing Arm Bushings. I cannot find them, the shop cannot find them. Anyone know where I can get them? All the listings seems to be for civics.
thanks

My question is.. why do you want to replace them? It would seem they last a long time.

They are creaking like crazy. I just put all new shocks on and it is still loud. I guess I replace the control arms and see which was the loud one.

Honda is saying it is all one piece. And it's a grand. He said I could try part #4 or #5. Any thoughts?

#5 is the piece that sits under your springs, correct?

IE, that is not apart of the trailing arm itself?

Yep under the spring . I know that is not the arm but it may be causing the noise is what I meant.

1 grand seems steep btw, it should be 800 tops, or less if you go through ebay, or check google shopping results

I have doubts that is the cause, I've gone through 2 coilovers, and 3 sets of lowering springs, and that piece has never gave me issues. but .... if you insist on replacing those, good news is, the part is cheap

going off of your 1st post:

" I have a 2009 Fit Sport and trying to find the Rear Trailing Arm Bushings. I cannot find them, the shop cannot find them. Anyone know where I can get them? All the listings seems to be for civics.
thanks "


no clue. not enough info provided (changes to the car? mileage? etc). but heck.... ill take some shots in the dark anyways.... i'm in a good mood:

-springs rubbing on something
-exhaust rubbing on something
-exhaust hangers rubbing on something
-something else, is causing the creak ... something unrelated and not mentioned as of yet .... and may never be mentioned, unless more info is provided and/or the op does more investigating

-you're right, and you really really need to replace that rear trailing arm

Thanks a lot for this looks promising. Just put the new control arms on yesterday and they doused everything with grease. Going to see how it goes. That doesn't work going to keep figuring out. This may do it. Thanks again

Just got the new control arms on a few days ago. But I'm a government contractor so I haven't exactly been using my car. In fact I haven't driven it at all. I will let you guys know though. Thanks
