I am about to pop the front subframe mounts. I am trying to understand exactly how you did your procedure; are you saying you unbolted the subframe from the body, letting it 'hang down' then basically pushed the bushing from underneath, then out the top?
Haven't had a real good look at the location, just looking for preliminary info.
