(Removing bushing sleeves from lower control arm.) Didn’t know for certain that the new lower control arm bushings would include the outer metal sleeves. But they do:

 

So, had to remove all of the ones I left in previously, in case I didn’t get new ones.

 

Simply used a chisel, hammer and brute force…

 

… and lots of WD40…

 

… to eventually get them all out.

 

Then used an angle grinder to smooth any burring out.

 

Then just repeat 3 more times for each bushing. Will probably now have to strip the control arms and repaint (the sides not photographed are a lot more ugly)… oh well.
