does anyone have any tips for getting my old spring bushings out without burning them, and without taking the springs out. im upgrading to polyurithane, i was able to get all the bolts out with moderate ease, now i hope to get the old bushings out the same way, without buying new u bolts.

get a big round piece of metal almost the same size as the bushing hole and press it into the hole using a c clamp or similar and bushing should pop out the other end.

Exactly - create a press similar to a ball joint c-clamp...

ok, i was on the rite track, i was going to use my balljoint press, but the springs are too wide, so my next thought was to somehow get the rubber out of the way so i can colaps the outer sleve and push it out, sawsall it is. thanks
