    (NEEDED) Rear trailing arm bushing remover/installer

    Anyone near Portland have one I could rent/barrow. I just spent the last 4 hours burning and beating mine out and they hardly budged.

    Thanks.

    Just curious: you didn't try to knock them from the outside in, did you? They're tapered and will pop right out if you hit them from the inside.

    I hope you're messing with me. All the videos I watched they knocked them through outside in. The wagons different? The bushing I bought didn't look tapered but I don't have calipers.

    Edit: You were right, still took an hour to knock them out. They are stupid tight. Now I'm trying to get the new ones in and I'm basically destroying the bushing just trying to hammer it in. SOOO annoying, almost not even worth my time, should have just bought the tool.

    Edit 2: Wow, F**K this. I'm just going to stop and wait to see if anyone has the tool. Hammering in the bushing is just destroying the lip of it then I'll be in $80 worth of bushings and still have to buy the tool.
