Part identification

Old chestnut - four wheel alignment required, but before I get that done, I need to replace both rear suspension arms and bushes (the rear rear arms rather than the front rear arms, if that makes sense). I checked shop4parts and found this - Fiat & Alfa Romeo Parts Specialist.Parts for Alfa Romeo, Fiat & Fiat Commercial vehicles. The question is - which one is the rear one? The Panhard rod appears to include a bush, but is that the front or the rear? And if it is the transverse arms I need, is this the bush for them? Fiat & Alfa Romeo Parts Specialist.Alfa Romeo 156 Mk1 (>2002) Rear Stub Axle Bush

Excuse the ignorance, but it's many years since I got my hands this dirty.... and how hard are they to replace?

Panhard rod includes FRONT bush where it mounts to floor pan. The separate bush is the one in the hub assembly that the panhard rod bolts to at the rear end.

The transverse arms are the four pressed items that run from the centre cross-member to the hub. The front pair are slightly shorter that the rear pair. The arms come with new bushes and they are the same on both side (no right and left arm I mean).

So it sounds from you post that you just need two rear transverse arms (S4P858) on shop4parts (although I got mine for a lot less from EB Spares They aren't Alfa-branded, but then Alfa don't make them anyway!)
