To do this job right you need access to a lathe and a hydraulic press. Any local machine shop should have the equipment needed to carry out this task. Machine the necessary tooling to press each bushing through as well as receivers to support the control arms and allow the bushings to fully push through. Alternately if upgrading to the ASURA Design S2000 spherical suspension shown here you can send your arms directly to ASURA Design for installation.
Press out all of the OEM bushings. With the upper control arms you must push through the opposing bushing hole as the bushings are flanged on the outer faces.
Sandblast the control arms to get any surface rust/old paint off.
Prime and paint. We used Duplicolor Semi Gloss black for the final finish and turned out great.

The ASURA bearings feature a unique rubber seal to prevent contamination of the bearing which serves to reduce wear. Use a small amount of lubricant on the O-ring to minimize drag.
