Undoing some hard work.

28 June 2008

(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.
