A brief look at the design of suspension bushes and pitfalls of cheap and
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).

Integra Rear Suspension Rebuild: Rear Trailing Arm, Control Arms, Bushings, Sway Bar
As a complement to my earlier vid, here's a rebuild of the rear suspension
on my wife's old 1996 Acura Integra, hopefully you find it useful. It's a
bit long at 30 mins but covers removal of the rear trailing arm, lower
control arm, uppper control arm, and compensator arm. Then removal and
pressing out of the bushings on the rear trailing arm, lower control arm
and sway bar link, then reinstallation.
homemade press , Pressing in control arm bushings
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
