Re: control arm bushings
I brought my control arms to a shop that I new in the area. He
did not have the special tool so he made one. He also accidently
bent one of the flanges around the bushing a little bit. Didn't
affect the performance of the control arm. He charged me $80. At
that time the "special" tool was $72 from Zelenda. I would NOT cut
off any of the bushing. You might try compressing the bushing with
a small piston ring compressor and some hose clamps after greasing it.
Then push it in with a big clamp or a bench vise and a socket. I
tried this but I could not get the whole thing to stay together. The
piston ring compressor I used was too large or too cheap or both.
