Fellow type 44 owners,

I'm in the process of rebuilding my front end and I just discovered a simple way of removing the bushings:

1. Get a propane torch ($11.86 at Home Depot).
2. Set the bushings on fire -- from both sides. (Doesn't take much doing, esp. with the oil they're covered with).
3. Wait for the central core to fall out.
4. Pry the outer sleeve out with a screwdriver.

I did the rear ones the hard way, but the procedure should work on those, too.

*Lots* of smoke, though -- be sure and do it outdoors!
