ive searched but cant find a thing.

i have new bushes and all the gear press etc to fit them.

but i cant see how to remove the old bushes ?

i cant push from behind the bush as there sat in back to back and i dont really want to get the oxy torch out !

any suggestions ?

Yep remove from car, burn out the centres, then cut a slot into the remains of the bush, and use a punch or chisel to hammer it in on itself and they should come out. Refitting is actually harder to do as you dont just push them all the way in, there is a specific measurement you have to aim for and if you overshoot its a pain to knock them back out.

or buy some new adjustable arms much easier than messing about with bushes and blow torches etc and much shinier...:thumbsup: and improves the handling..

well fitted the bushes didnt need to use the press i just used a vice. once rubber was burned out of the centres bushing sleeves knocked out easy enough.
