Removal Guide for
A-Arm Front Bushings & Trailing Arm-to-Chassis Bushings
A blow torch may be necessary to burn the old rubber bushing out of the arm.

Using a tube, a socket and a vice it is often easy to remove an old bush like this.
use blow torch

Some bushes have a metal outer sleeve which will always need to be removed. Push or burn out the old rubber, the outer sleeve is then clear to see (top left picture), then cut the metal outer sleeve along its length with a hacksaw. Cut until the saw blade becomes tight. This means you have cut through the outer sleeve and the tension has clamped the blade. remove steel sleeve
use hacksaw

Bushes with a flange can be chiseled out. use chisel

Some more difficult bushes can be removed by drilling through the outer sleeve.
  • Left: drill through the outer sleeve to cut it and relieve the tension. 
  • Center: cut only the outer sleeve.
  • Right: bush will now be easy to cut out
use drill
