Got the new rear bushings installed.
What a big difference in handling.
Car is now more stable and steering wheel has never been very steady even when braking hard.

It mounts to the rear bumper shocks behind the bumper on my 1996.

Power steering pump can whine if it is sucking air or fluid is foaming.
