Hi

there's some clanking noise coming from my rear suspension and I can't figure out exactly what it is. Everything seems to be find except I found both my rear steering swivel bushes completly shot.
These bushes seem to be pressed into the steering swivel member and connect to the lower suspension arm.

I think these bushes are part nr 24469643 https://www.esaabparts.com/saab/parts/24469643

First of all - can you tell by the looks if the steering swivel housing that holds the bush is bent or is it supposed to be under angle?

Second - how do you replace the bushes? Is it necessary to remove the whole swivel unit or can you press bushings while it's connected to the suspension assembly?

I can't find any instructions in WIS how to change them unfortunately.
