Not very good luck at all! The c-clamp method destroyed the bushing and the hydraulic press method also proved unsuccessful. At less than 2 per bushing, I went ahead and ordered bushlop.buzzted Reading Time: 3 mins.

Make certain and use only a flat head tap. If you were to start finding it difficult tighting the tap in I would back off, the last thing you would want to do Estimated Reading Time: 50 secs.

Not a huge deal but they will wear out significantly quicker when the oil is gone. Attached is a picture of what this looks like on a Pro spindle. Aug 24, Joined Dec 30.

My rear bushings were worn in rear at 4k miles. They were full of dry dust and rough. I replaced with OEM as they are relative cheap to do with new pivot shafts.
I also installed zerks on all of them and will see if it bushlop.buzzted Reading Time: 2 mins. May 19, On each of the three spindles I worked on, what had happened was the bushings were sliding towards the inside of the spindle, since there is no ridge to prevent horizontal movement of the bushing. This takes away the support and the bushing ends up wearing out even faster which then allows the spindle ski spacer to wear out the inside bore of.
