Getting the old bushes out with a saw is possible, but will take some time.dubaidrift said:Hi there,
I am planning to change the Panhard rod bushes rear and front and the radius arm bushes in the front.
Can i do this job without a workshop press? I was thinking of using a hacksaw to remove the old bushes and was hoping that i can press in the new bushes without a press - maybe a hammer?
Has anyone done this? Do i require any other special tools?
Getting the new ones in without a press, is less straightforward. You could try using a hammer, but will run the risk of damaging the bushes if not perfectly straight. A heavy vice might suffice, or you could use a 'bushwacker', essentially a piece of threaded rod to pull the bush into the arm.
But easiest would be to just find a place with a press, only takes a couple of minutes.
