It's tuff. Best way I know of is to get a drill with 1/4" or 3/8" bit and drill away at the rubber between the two shells. Then you can get a chisell and whack the inner shell out then the outer shell. Take your time and STOP SCREAMING...Goodluck
It is fairly easy if you use a chisel or punch to crush the side of the bushing inward. The bushing can then be knock out with a 2lb sledge very easily. Install the bushing with the same hammer, lubricate the surface with grease and use a metal plate against the bushing.
I replaced every suspension bushing front and rear in my 66SS a few years back. I used and air chisel and had all the bushings out in about a half hour with no damage at all. Putting the bushings in the freezer definately works well. I was able to tap the new bushings in with light blows from a brass mallet. Mike, M22
