Question about rear suspension

I have a rattling noise in the right rear of my car (1998 328I). It only rattles when going over large bumps. It seems to have gotten gradually worse. Also, when I did the brakes the right rear tire was worn very badly on the inside.
I took it to a dealer to find out what it was and to get a quote.
The say the rear thrust arm bushings need replaced because they are torn.
Is this the same as the trailing arm bushings? I have done some research and cannot seem to find any place were there is a thrust arm bushing. Including an oem parts site.
Any one ever heard of this? Any help would be appreciated.
