Jun 13, Posts: 2, Re: Upper control Arm Bushing Replacement. If the axle is in the vehicle, I use threaded rod and some parts of the Advance ball joint tool and their part of the control arm bushing tool. It helps with the limited room because you have the oil pan and springs in your way. It may be easier if you jack up the frame and let the angle. Sep 21, Re: Tips for painless control arm bushing replacement? Yeah the arms were pretty cheap (Crown Manufacturing) and to replace the upper bushings in the axle the ball joint press works great.

My jeep hasmiles on it and it did come apart.

Nov 25, Re: Removing control arm bushings (axle side) The press will definately help. You may need the master adapter set that harbor freight has if the adapters in your set don't work with the bushing size. I'm sure you had the axle at its lowest point so tool clearance shouldn't be an issue but please do keep this in mind. Sep 14, The upper bushing in the axle is the same size as the bushing in the control arm. (XJ) OEM XJ bushings have 12mm bolt sleeves with bumps inside it to center a 10mm bolt.

OEM ZJ bushings have 10mm bolt sleeve (rolled steel) OEM WJ bushings have 10mm TUBING sleeves.

Never blame the beer.

I noticed my 10mm bolt for my upper long arms was wiggling around too much for my Estimated Reading Time: 1 min. Apr 19, Made a relief cut so the outter sleeve could be folded in, to release the outward pressure. Then punched it out with a nail puller (only thing I had the same width as the bushing). For the install, go ahead and rent a ball joint press if u don't have one (or a good size c clamp) It wasrefundable at my local AutoZone.
