Question rear wheels toed in.

My 1999 Saab 95 wagon both rear wheels are seriously toed in and the tires around the inside are worn down to the threads. A saab mechanic diagnosed it needed new upper and lower bushings. Is the correct? And what's a guesstimate for a job like this?

Bushings are cheap from eeuro. Might as well order the poly bushings from powerflex in the front of the trailing arm as well. I was quoted $150-200 from one indy and $350 from another. They aren't too difficult to get out with a diy press/gear puller. Or take the trailing arm off and just take that in

Likely more than that. Your springs are likely gone too as well as the shocks. Typical for the wagon. You might also need shims to get the rear wheels back in alignment after you do all the repairs. Order a set of 3mm(4), and 6mm (4) shims so the alignment tech can insert them when he does the alignment.
