Job's done, it was a piece of cake!

Thanks again for the input re. how to push the control arm forward. Here's how I set up the ram. All that was needed to make it long enough was a deep socket and short extension placed on the end of the ram .
I set this in place first, before loosening any bolts, so when the carrier is unbolted, nothing moves. I left the ram in place until after changing out the bushing. The new one just screws right into the rod, bolt it up again, and I was done in about 1 1/2hrs.
I did take the time to clean everything up nicely, especially the pocket where the bushing goes. BTW, I used a press to push out the old bushing, much faster and safer than beating it out with a maul.
