Suspension Q & A


I am having some problems with rebuilding my front suspension using the pst kit. The upper control arm bushings are too large to fit where the old ones were. The kit says that you should not press out the stock bushing race, but remove the race off the new bushing and press in the new bushing and use the new washers etc. My problem is, how can I do this? It is nearly impossible to knock off the washers with a punch like the directions say. What is the best way to remove and install the bushing/shaft/washers on the stock upper control arm?

Use an air chisel, it knocks the old ones right out. Easiest thing I've found for uppers.
