Old and boxy but good.

That 30 year old rubber is hard and unflexible compared to a new fresh rubber bushing. If you want the best results it's worth it to change the bushing. Volvo has a drift and receiver for that so the trailing arm is supported well. Be sure to support the arm well if you are pressing it out. Some time with penetrating oil will help break the bushing loose. That one and the front control arm bushing are the toughest to replace.
