Hello

I am trying to remove the bushing from the upper control arms of my Barracuda and I am having trouble getting them out. Does anybody know of any tricks to get these out? Do I need to buy a special bushing removal tool? When I do get these out do I need to have the bushings pressed in or can I hammer them in?
Thank you for any replies and have a good day,

[]{} In fact I have a 12 ton shop press in my garage and I still had to fight with them so much, next time I will take them to someone and have them done!

I've used a big hammer a press, and a tool by American Muscle and I have to say the tool is the winner by far. It works much like Jim described. I don't think Bill sells them but here's a link to another good guy who does.

You can get a comprehensive kit that does most anything you need on the front end as well so click around the web site to see whats available. I've also used a BIG bench vise with BIG sockets but if you're going to do it more than once in a blue moon buy the tool.
