Bushing Replacement

1989 300E

Clunking noise from the right rear. Looks like this bushing is shot. Is this an easy DIY or is a special tool required?

Right rear just in front of the tire.

It's pretty easy. Gotta level the axle to driving position before tightening.
How are your subframe bushings looking?

Replace the link, I don't think that the bushing is available. 20minutes.

The 2nd photo shows a definite gap between the bushing and its housing, which shouldn't be there.

What link is this called? May have to replace the link as suggested. Need to know the name of this puppy if the bushing cannot be ordered for it. Also, the subframe mounts look bad too!
