On my 87 Camry, the mechanic replaced the whole lower control arm, both sides.
He said that was faster and cheaper than burning out the old and pressing in new bushings.
He got them from the local parts store, JB auto group in Victoria.

When I did the bushings on the LCA bushings on my Gen1, I had to get a shop to burn out the bushing and press in the new ones. I bought the bushings (only) from ebay...but this was 10yr ago. I don't see it anymore...

Also, I found out per info that the bushings from a 1984-1986 will work. 1983 is different.

I did see bushings from rockauto for the part of the stabilizer bar that intersects the lower control arm.
But I got a generic rubber bushing from autozone, with a little alteration, fitted it in. I'll know more when I get steering knuckle back from shop with new bearing pressed in.
