87 944 Turbo Control Arm bushing

My 87 951 appears to have a bad rear bushing on the passenger side control arm.
Is it possible to replace the bushing without disconnecting the strut, hub, caliper and sway bar?

Also I started hearing the clicking noise from the passenger side. I know it comes from where the ECU and KLR are located.
I don't know which one clicks. It occurs frequently even at coasting.
What causes this?

Thank you for your help

the KLR controls boost (mechanical) and is likely the source of the clicking. not sure about the rear bushing access.

For the rear bushing, you will not have to remove anything except the sway. You will probably have to remove the control arm to replace the interior bushing, not so for the caster block. Not a hard job, but plan on a wheel alignment afterwards. Be sure to index the caster eccentric so you can get it close enough to drive to the alignment rack.
