That appears to be for the radius arm which FIGS sells and they are poly.
What I'm thinking you are in need of however this. If you are referring to the control arm:

one is for the knuckle, the other is for the other end of the control arm

Knuckle bushings are causing the noise. Figs sells them and a shop in new zealand or australia sells the oe style replacement.

so I wonder if this is the freaking noise that I hear in the rear. I typically hear it when I'm pulling away from a read light. Sounds like a creek/rattle noise mixed all in one.

So is it the rear axle carrier bushing or the knuckle bushing?
