Default Front spring eye bushings?

Has anyone replaced these? The bushings that fit in the back of the front suspension springs.

I got a wild hair and decided to do mine and it was really tough to get the old one out. I had to use a drill, Hi-Lift, BFH, chisel, and finally my saw-zall. I got the old one out and went to put he new one in and the hole is about 1/8th of an inch too small. I guess the spring eye springs tight around the bushing. Anyone done this and if so, how did you get the new one in?


Thanks!
-B.

Default more questions on brakes

Hondo,

Are you talking about yourself in 3rd person, or is that a shop called "ramp champ"? I don't getcha.

What if someone has no press....what then?

As to Tom's taunts of Velvet- How is Velvet's bed? How is Velvet's front fenders? How is Velvet's rocker pannels?

Daqn,

Funny. I guess I was...only if I had been thinking more then I'd have come up with a method like you did. I was all "Get old one out. Go from there." which is underthinking.

It was #16. I may try your bolt method as I just got off the phone with TOMMMMERRRRRINNNNNOOOOO!!! (who is still taunting me with the idea that he and Mrs. Lawlor may fly down and bunk over) and he suggested a vice. Since my vice is bolted to my spool and I don't want to unbolt it, the bolt is the 3rd best thing. It beats my hammer method by a long shot.

I already did the front ones and I had no trouble there. I am doing this to try and eliminate my mysterious clunk that comes when I turn the steering wheel somethimes.

Thanks guys!
-B.

Have you checked the mounting bolts on the shock(tower) support? My truck made some weird front-end sounds when I first got it, and the bolts were loose and had worn through the threads. I replaced them and no more noise. Just a Thought.
