So while changing my front and rear strut and coils to new TRUHART suspension, 1 of my rear had a issue with the bolt connecting the wheel hub and the control arm. It was so stuck to the arm bushing that i had to use a grinder and cut the bolt off. Now I got a new bolt and allready ordered a new replacement for the arm bushing. [part #55130 4D000]

Big question is, has anyone ever removed & replaced a rear arm bushing?
Doing some research on it now but any feedback/directions/instruction or simple support will be greatly appreciated!

Do you have more info on how it can be done? I saw a video a guy used a hammer drill and a chizzell to knock it out. I assume putting it back going to be just as a bitch as taking it out.

My new bushing is coming in tomorrow. Ordered a bushing press should be in by Friday. May use the bushing press to pry it out.
