To see if the upper inner control arm bushings are bad:
With the car sitting level, put your foot on the top of the rear tire, perpendicular to the side of the car.
Push in with your foot, rocking the car side to side, by the wheel.
After the first couple of wiggles, you will see the wheel move about a half-inch in and out at the top if the bushing is bad; I could hear a clear clunk when it moved.
Easiest diagnosis ever; but I didn't realize it was a problem at the time I noticed the movement, lol.
