07 Patriot toe links

I have a 07 Patriot up on stands in my garage right now because it was making some clunking in the rear. I jacked it up and pulled the tires and said to myself, "this is gonna' suck". The bushing on the toe link had separated from the link at the crossmember end and was hitting against the crossmember. I figured no problem, HA!, after cutting the bolts at the bushing , both top and bottom (they were seized in the metal part), I got them out and got new links/bolts, preparing to reinstall everything when I noticed that the bushing on the trailing arm link where it attaches to the body seem kinda' weak to me. I can easily move the arm both fore and aft rather easily. How stiff is this bushing supposed to be where it connects to the rear body mount? If I've got this thing apart and have to get an alignment when I'm done, I'd rather do it once. But, then again, I don't want to just start replacing parts on a whim if they're not needed. This thing never sees the woods or trails ( the wifes' daily driver)

When in doubt, throw them out. Since you're already in there I'd replace them. Figure they've got the same age and mileage as the toe link bushings.
