Rear trailing arm bushes

Sat Jan 26, 2019 4:01 pm

Hi folks,just started changing all the rear control arms and bushes today,and got to the stage where I have the trailing arm off(absolute nightmare),so now need to know how to remove the old bushes(ones that attach to subframe)is it a case of cutting them out.

You will be hard pushed to remove/cut them out without removing the subframe. To remove by just dropping the subframe on one side you will need this tool 253061147847 of eBay. Also needed to install new bushes unless your putting in poly bushes
