Poly bushings need to be assembled with lube to prevent squeaking. You might want to try taking the control arms off, luging them up and reassemble. That will be easier than replacing the bushings. The polys will come out easy, but pressing in the new rubber ones requires care to not bent the arms.

Isn't it strange that after a bombing, everyone blames the bomber, his upbringing, his environment, his culture, his mental state but … after a shooting, the problem is the gun?
