I've not yet replaced (or serviced) the rear camber links, but 
probably will need to do so in at least one of our cars (the 
"low-mileage" one, naturally). However, I've had the impression that 
replacements were not available except as a complete linkage (upper 
and lower joint). Have you found a source for the separate components?
