I’ve been putting off this job for a long time, but as you can see from the condition of my 217,000+ mile bushings, it was time! I was mostly afraid to get stuck during the bushing removal phase and have to go to a shop to use a press, but as you can see, in regular CarPassion style, I did the job with very simple and cheap tools.
Below you’ll find links to more instructions as well as all of the parts and tools (or similar tools… kinda hard to find 50+ year old drill bits). Hopefully this video will give you all more confidence in tackling this job yourself.
