Removed my rear subframe, popped out the old subframe
bushings on a press w/o much trouble and went to
install the new ones. Lubed bushings and holes in
subframe with some dishwashing liquid. Rear bushings
(longer w/ small green dot on heads) slid in quite
nicely. The problem I am having is with the shorter
(front) bushings. The just will not slide in without
going in crooked and tearing some of the rubber. I
would appreciate it if anyone had any tips on
pressings these bushings/alternate methods etc. I
don't want to buy 2 additional bushings only to have
the same thing happen!
Thanks in advance
