I second this motion.  Both the spring plate bushings and the diagonal arm bushings can wear and really throw off your rear alignment.  In fact, there is little use in an alignment until after you have checked both of these visually, and by rocking the car severely while watching for movement or squeaking/scraping noises from them.  It’s a full day’s job to replace all four pieces and get the ride height correct, but the improvement is well worth it in driving pleasure and tire life.
