Hi All, 

 

I have my frame going to blasters at the end of the month before powder coat. I removed the front lower control arms, but the bushings are seized in the frame. I checked the chassis service manual, and they only say to press or remove the bushings with a suitable tool?? I tried to hammer them out with a steel rod and sledge but they didn't budge. Any suggestions?

I made a simple tool with a Long threadened shaft and nuts.

Reversed the tool to press in the new bushing. 

I will look for the dimensions if you want me to do.

Great idea! I think it's straightforward - large end cups the frame and provides a spot for the bushing to go, small end butts against the bushing and forces it out, and the threaded rod goes through the whole thing. 

 

I'll make one for myself and let you know how it goes!
