Polyurethane Suspension Bushes - The Good & Bad

badly designed bushes. The contrast is the superior design and engineering
of the SuperPro brand.
HOW TO: Installing VW Polyurethane Lower Control Arm Bushings without a Press
2003 VW TDI 1.9L Diesel Lower Control Arm Bushings are Hard to line-up, but
with a bolt , some grease and some washers the small one is a breeze. The
larger bushing requires force. I used an anvel with a screw type attached
vise and an 8" block of 2x4 wood. Once again the grease was the key. For
the big bushing you will need helping hands (it is a two person job).

Well it arrived and I am very excited to get this project started. One of
the most overlooked and unappreciated parts on our cars and trucks are the
bushings. Most folks overlook the small parts until they end up causing
serious damage to your ride and wallet. Definitely a must if you want a
better ride comfort and handling automobile. Also something to look at if
you plan on raising or lowering the ride height of your car and truck or if
you plan to keep it stock height, still check it out.

Homemade Hydraulic shop press with 20 ton jack. Pressing in energy
suspension bushings and progress spherical bearings on honda civic lower
control arms. 2x2" square steel 1/4" thick. 3/16 square tube works great
too. The outside dimensions are about 21" tall x 18" wide. updates below.
Update added thick top plates and a base.
- The most difficult part in making this frame with single top and bottom
tube is you have to make sure the top and bottom square tubes is absolutely
parallel to each other. Not only from side to side but from front and back.
This is a little difficult , if you are welding , make tacks then check and
adjust if necessary. If the tubes is not parallel then the part will try to
come out when the force is applied. This is why the single top tube is not
so great idea or if you look at a real press it has 2 tubes at the base
where the part sits.
- If all you have is 1/16 thick tube it will work with most bushings but
you need to protect the top tube with a plate(i write about that below)
- If you make this , try to protect the top bar by using a plate, you can
see I have the black plate tied to the top tube , if you do not use a thick
plate here to spread the load you can easily damage the top bar, if you
look at the orange frame in the background you can see how that one is
damaged. If you are pressing in some soft or easy bushings then you do not
need that part but if you are pressing in something difficult that requires
a lot of force then use something to protect the top.
Wood press - there is a video on youtube about a wood press pressing in a
wheel bearing it is amazing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=krbrm1bN-Mg I
tried wood to press out control arm bushings but they were so tight and the
whole frame flexed so it did not work for me but maybe you can make it
