s2 front lower link bushes installation

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have just received the front lower wishbone poly bushes from SJ.

When trying to fit these bushes into my original lower links, it seems the bush does't fit as there is a metal sleeve in the way. Should I use a hack saw to remove these sleeves?

Thanks in advance :)

HI Vin,

did you burn out the old rubber bushes?

If it is, yes you still have the outer metal sleeve of the old bushes in.

Ciao

Hi giorgio,

Yes I did burn the bushes out .. Should I use a simple hacksaw to take them out .. or should I take them to my local mechanic to press the old sleeves out?

Vin,

take great attention while pushing out the old sleeves with a press...I had my lower arms badly bented and ruined by a ....mechanic that was tempting to fit the ARB on them, so put a piece of metal between the two parts when the press is pushing.
