The best way is to replace the bushings, and yes they are packaged as complete sets of bushings. Every mail order, internet, etc retailer sells them.

If you have a suspension or spring shop nearby, you can pick up the bushings for 2 or 3 dollars apiece. The get a jack and a couple of jackstands and go crazy... God bless.
