Just got back from Korea and still on Korean time schedule (awake at night, sleepy during day). Got up wide awake at 3:00am and took off the idler arm bolt. Easy as cake. I took off the nut, used a large pair of pliers to pull out the bottom bushing. Pushed the bolt up, used a large deep socket and rubber hammer to loosen top bushing. Put socket in from bottom and, socket was large enough to fit over bolt and sat on the bushing. Got it started then used pliers to pry out, came out easy and had plenty of play to pull bolt out.
Man that was a lot easier than I thought it would be.
Thanks for the great advice guys.
