Rear lower control arm bushing noise

Since having the front LCA fixed/upgraded at 10,000 miles according to the TSB on my '13 GT, THAT noise is GONE.

I have noticed a noise from the REAR, usually on a slow bounce (driveway) and I am assuming it's the rear lower control arm bushings.

Ford made a choice to stay with the soft bushing, and I wonder if this was done to compromise additional rear end noise/vibration transfer into the passenger compartment.

That said, upgrading the LCA's or even just the bushings could create other issues for my modestly driven daily driver.

I'm not a track guy, and not too worried about wheel hop.

Has anyone here tried to simply spray/soak the factory bushings with silicone spray, the idea being that a bit might creep into the flex part and quiet the sound?

Thanks for the replies!
