Default Fitting the metalsitic bushes into the suspension arms

Hi Guys

I am struggeling to press the metalsitic bushes into the front wishbones. I have tried all the usual tricks - washing-up liquid etc but they are proving VERY difficult to do. The problem is that they require a huge amount of force (squeezing in vice) to get them in and then - when they finally go they seem not to be in square.

Any suggestions anyone

Always difficult getting bushes in place even when you buy specific tools for the job.

In the end I found it a lot easier to go to a local garage that had a press and get them to do it. They only charged about a tenner to get the old ones out and put the new ones in - well worth it.

Cheers, John
