finally got around to removing the anti roll bar

Recommended Posts

I'm not sure drawing them in with a stud will work, since the inner diameter of the bushing probably needs to shrink a bit to get through the hole in the wishbone.   I did try that method (without the cone) and that did not work at all...

That's what my concern is... I'll give it a try with some 10mm studding which is smaller than the hole. I'm hoping there'll be enough 'pull' to drag it through while the studding keeps everything centred. That's the optimist in me right there...

If not, then plan B is my friend's large vice. Plan C is the garage down the road who have a press.

Thanks to both of you, Travis and Dave!

I was already to machine up a tool, there!

Ian, I think your problem is the circlips... From what I've read here they can seize into the hole. I don't have that problem with mine but I have plenty of other challenges to overcome. All part of the fun (apparently).

Not worth starting anything now...🍺

Mine needed a tool to put them in. Give the recesses for the circlip a good clean an you may need a thin screwdriver to get the remains of the circlips out. I also found it easier to fit the atr into the bushes drivers side 1st

I don't have any ARB bush problems at the moment, I'm simply trying to get ahead of the game when I do the job. If I do happen to need a tool, rather than the usual stud bar arrangement, then clearly I will have to make one at the time.
