Hey all. My car is currently at the shop and when doing an alignment on the back they broke a cam bolt. Got a new one in, but they can't get it out. They couldn't find a back lower rearward bushing to replace it and press the old one out and the new one in. Does anyone have any other solutions? I saw some one mention the part #MS254100 but that one is only for the front and won't work. Their solution is to buy a whole new control arm, but dodge doesn't make the rear control arms anymore; so they have to find me a used one for around $688. Please help this is super frustrating!

If you have a self serve junkyard near you, you could pull one for probably less than $50. $688 is ridiculous.

All Darts are the same in the rear suspension.

A newer Dart shouldn't have a problem getting it out intact.
You will need external Torx sockets and a small floor jack to carefully remove the spring.

Yeah $688 is gonna suck to pay if needed. I've talked to a couple of junk yards and they wont let me pull out the bushing on the control arm. Want me to buy the whole thing.... bummer.

From your IP, you are in Colorado. There are several you pull junkyards in the Denver area. I've been there. Much cheaper if you pull it.
