Mine are basically pressed out anyways, seeing as all they are doing is bouncing around in there. They're REALLY bad. I'm tempted to just go powerflex for ease of installation...although if I just took off the stanchion arms, I could get the bushings pressed in, right? No need to drop the sub frame yet again, hopefully.

Nope no need to drop the sub-frame, just remove the rear bolts and then unbolt the stanchion arm from the control arm.

dont forget about the little sleeves that go in there as well. forgot to do those on mine and wound up with some bad wondering. the sleeves actually hold the stanchion arm in place.

Yeah don't forget the sleeves. Also, make sure you label them for the proper side, so you don't do two the same way like I did...oops. They're not terrible to press in. I heated my stanchion arms, froze the bushings so they'd shrink (I think it helped, YMMV) then very carefully seated the bushings with a mallet and socket. After that I pushed them the rest of the way with a vice and same big sockets. Not terribly difficult, just time consuming.

On eeuroparts they only have one sleeve...doesn't appear to be side-specific. Or am I missing something here? Looks like I should get 4 of these.
