Which car?

Your signature doesn't list any Mercedes-Benz cars... which car and transmission type (automatic or manual) does this apply to? Thanks,

Kurt

Or you can just use the proper bushings. Its really not that hard to get them on. I devised a good/quick solution to doing it. Hasn't failed me yet. It involves a bench vise.

My apologies, this was done on a 1985 300SD with automatic transmission, to my knowledge it has the 126 body style.

Care to elaborate? I've got new bushings on my bench, and no bushings on my car

I use a socket just bigger than the ID of the bushing on the pushing side, a socket just bigger than the OD of the bushing on the open side, my biggest slip joint pliers and a good squirt of Silglyd. Keeping track of which of the 4 holes in the bell crank the rod was attached to is a bigger problem
