Are you saying your bushing looks like the one in 17C ???

That is VERY unusual. I've never seen/heard of a '87 300DT with a bushing like that... I've got 4 myself and have not seen it on any of the other cars I've looked at.

It is the one in View 17C

The one I have is Case C. I was wondering if another new type of bushing supersedes it. I cant find the type I have, C, anywhere on the Internet.

You can try your bottle jack routine again, but hit the side of the control arm with a hammer to "shock" it loose. Also, while applying pressure with the bottle jack (not enough to bend anything, just enough to tension it), hit the flange with an air chisel. If its a steel sleeve, that's similar to my Dodge pick-up's control arm bushings.

The replacement should not be like 17C.

They should be like 17A or 17B.

This is a 1987 300DT correct?? What is your VIN# ? It must be VERY early.

Regards,

Dont laugh..

Now I have the 16a SET off.So I have a clear open hole there. I can let the top of the bottle jack pass through that hole, thereby not stretching the control arm when I apply pressure. Using the weight of my pick up truck bumper as a top counterstop and a strategically placed wood block on the bottom, I might have a chance to jack it out...
