Im trying to replace the inner bushing on the rear control arm. It was squeaking like crazy so got the new part and figured on under an hour to do it. Well, like almost everything that looks like a quick fix, things got skechy as I tried to get the old bushing out. 4 hours later and its still in there Ive tried beating the crap out of it with my finest Mercedes tool (4 pound mini sledge), getting a pipe and screw/washers and getting it out that way, and simply using my quasi jeti powers, all to no avail. do you get it out, using things found in a common garage or inexpensive tools? Thanks in advance!

We have a special tool that "pulls" the old bushing out & another tool to "push" the new one in, without damage to either one.
