borrow trailing arm bushing press, madison?

Recommended Posts

Checking to see if anyone around Madison has the trailing arm bushing press tool I could borrow?  Car is up on jacks and 1000 combinations of the Orileys rental tools aint gonna do it and I've destroyed the one in there trying to get it out.  Thanks

When I did it, I just used a regular hydraulic press with a socket/random bits of pipe, so I guess I’m no help there, but I’d imagine that if you took it to a shop they could do it cheap and fast. In order to get mine out, I cut all of the rubber lip off of one end of the bushing to make it easier to press out, worked like a charm.

yeah, got them out after a lot of swearing and sawzall.  That job sucks.  But old ones were completely shot.  Still have to do the fronts, but hopefully those are easier since they can be fully removed.  Doing the ball joints on that as well. Gonna buy a press for that.
