I might try to change out my RE leaf bushings this coming weekend. Anyone ever done it? I tried searching but didn't find much help. Do I need a press? I saw one guy beat them out with a block of wood, would that work ok? Should I just pull the leafs and take them somewhere? Anyone wanna help? Can it be done on the jeep (my guess is no, but you never know the tricks)? Its only one front one that needs replacing but since I have a set I figured I should do them all.


Thanks,
Andy

STop your pathetic sniveling (did I spell sniveling right?)
Pull the mother farkers off and beat the crap out of them until they submit!

Or bring them over to someone who owns a press and push them out...

Like you hadto ask...

I read on here about freezing the bushings. Any idea on that? Waste of time or good idea?
