Default fc rear lower control arm bushing and sperical bearing question

Hi everybody , I had a few questions about the rear control arm bushing and spherical bearing. I removed the complete rear sub frame over chrismas with 125k on the chasis . i've looked around and could'nt find any info on the bushing or spherical bearings for the FC. My questions are : do the upper bearings go bad at all ? they look solid in construction compared the the sperical bearings that look more like a wear item. Are there any aftermarket replacement parts for them besides oem parts? Any info about these two items would be great thanks

You can get aftermarket polyurethane rear control arm & sway bar bushings from either Energy Suspension (ES) or Prothane. For the DTSS bushings, Racing Beat has the Delrin "DTSS eliminator" bushings, which gets rid of the stock rear-steering functionality. The sub-frame bushings are all Mazda OEM, but you can buy the stiffer Mazdacomp versions. As for the all the remaining bushings in the rear, Mazda OEM is the only source I'm aware of.
