Control Arm Bushings

Hey guys got another question. My front upper control arm bushings are currently non-existent, all the rubber is gone now. I have the bushings already but do they have to be pressed or can i put them in myself?

U can do it. There is a metal sleeve that has to come out. ( look at the new ones) Access to a air chisel well make the job easer.

Insert the new one far enough to get the washer and nut on,using the nut to press the new bushing in. Be sure and leave the nut on the other end while tightening the one your replacing. HTH
