Does anyone have tips on removing the bushings from the bearing bracket
My car's an '84 300sd. I actually removed and replaced the bushings on the driver's side. The first bushing came out by prying out with a crow bar. Thes second (smaller) bushing wouldn't budge and I wound up dilling the hell out of the bushing until it collapsed and was able to take it out. I'm ready to do the passenger side. Already I can tell that these bearings are going to be a PITA. I really don't want to spend hours drilling and getting covered with aluminum shavings. I sprayed these bushings liberally with wd40 and will try the prying thing tomorrow (I have my doubts).
There's got to be a better way!
