Rubber Chassis Bushings Question?

Are there front and rear rubber chassis bushings on our cars?

When I come to a stop sometimes, car is stopped the body will bounce up and down slightly. When this happens I her a creaking in the rear.

Has anyone replaced them or know anything about them, Thanks.

There are 4 subframe bushings in the rear. There are no subframe bushings in the front, it bolts directly to the chassis but the engine and transmission are mounted on rubber mounts.

The suspension links are a different story. There are several in the front and rear.

Usually there is a clunking noise when going over something like a speed bump when subframe bushings are bad. I suggest thoroughly checking the rear suspension as it could be other component(s)

Also if you have a full air suspension and have height fully up, with enough speed to allow front end to barely drop (not roll smoothly) over a speed bump will tell you control rod long rod as it compresses and short as it drops will make a clunk.

I'm getting a creaking on acceleration from the very rear near the mufflers, over some bumps as well.

Checked the rear lower control arm to frame bushings. They have a much higher rate of failure.
