Mar 28, Lucked up on a press on Craigslist forthat needed the bottle jack replaced. Using the welded washer method it took me a total of 20 minutes to remove the old bushing. I picked up the tip on this forum to use a 1/2 washer (ground to fit).

Oct 05, After pressing the attaching shaft out of the bushing,what is left of the old rubber bushing usually comes out with a screw you are replacing with a OEM rubber bushing, the inner shell on the attaching shaft will loosen with a few strikes of a outer shell in the control arm, I cut several grooves with a air hacksaw,then collapse the shell with a chisel till it.

I was going to use the 1 3/8” tap method to remove the bushing shell from the control arm. 2. mopar dodge lower control arm bushing removal. Mar 12, For B Bodies Only Classic Mopar Forum.

I had the same issue with Moog lower arm bushings last year. Agree x 1; Feb 27, # Mike FBBO Gold Member FBBO Gold. Dec 15, But for bushings which absorb road forces, as in the lower control arm bushings (typically GM and such), then rubber is best in those locations.

I suspect that all replacement bushings are of higher durometer (stiffness) than the OEMs might have been, too. Front leaf spring bushings should be rubber, but the rear shackle bushings can be poly.
