Does anyone know of an aftermarket supplier for lower control arm bushings for a 2002 Buick LaSabre with aluminum lower arms?

Dealer item only, you need the control arm.

To make cars lighter to increase fuel efficiency, they changed the conrtol arm metal. It can't handle the pressing in and out (I assume).
