So I think I messed up on ordering? How do you get the old bushings out without the sleeve?
So I'm doing a rear end overhaul and ordered these bushings and the recommended Maximum Motorsports Rear Upper Axle Bushing Tool (79-04) but it says that this doesn't come with the metal sleeve and to reuse the one on the car. but this tool only removes the entire bushing (sleeve and all) so I'm confused on what to do. return the bushings? return the tool? if I return the tool then how does one remove just the rubber? (keep in mind I'm not going to remove the entire rear end this is all going to be done in/under car.) or is it like I remove the old entire bushing with tool then burn out the old bushing from sleeve then insert new bushing into old sleeve then reinstall the entire thing?
Thanks for any help on this matter going to be performing this upgrade on Wednesday any insight before then is much appreciated.
You can fill out a RMA form for the tool. I took a drill and drilled my bushings out. I got the biggest drill bit and just started drilling out the rubber. eventually there was enough rubber removed, so I could just push it out. Hope that helps Jason.
