Upper A Arm Bumper


51 Special
 Share

Recommended Posts

I want to replace the upper A arm bumpers on my 51 Buick Special but I can't figure out how to get it done. The bumper pushes into place, there are no bolts to hold it in. I've tried pushing it on but it just won't go. Anyone ever install a set of these and if so how did you do it? I've also tried greasing it up hoping that would help me to be able to push it on but no luck.

You probably don't want to grease it with a petroleum base grease because it may attack the rubber. You could try some silicone grease (very sparingly) or spray. Sometime a twisting or rocking motion is needed to get part of it started or even a blunt tool. An additional dumb question: are you sure what you have is the right part?
