Re: how to remove upper control arm bushings (video)

I watched your videos for both removing and installing the 12bolt bushings. Very informative as I am about to do this job and haven't found such straight forward instructions. If I can knock them out in 4x the time it took you I'd be amazed. You've definitly done that more than once

Hey good video!!

It almost makes me want to drop my diff again, and install a bushing and then use your technique to remove the bushing. I used the sledge hammer technique but this can run the risk of cracking the ears.
