All the rubber parts SEEM to be okay at first glance. Even the trailering arm bushings appear to be in good shape. Lots of suspension work (including the LEFT rear trailering arm) were replaced within the last 3 or 4 years.

The end of the shock pushed through its mount on the trailering arm. It looks to have rusted from the inside out.
