Who's got a good hand tool solution to this?
I'll buy a new bushing and bolt, but I still need to press this out while it's in the car.
The bolt is frozen in the bushing. It would rip the rubber. I cut the head off so maybe I could support the bushing and knock the bolt free. The bolt to the frame mount on the other end is also frozen in it's bushing. I'd be happy to cut these all away, but they seem to be hardened bolts. This one took 3 old sawzall blades to get through.
Any homegrown remedies are appreciated.
...2 hours later... I realize having got it disassembled to this point, it was not necessary to remove that bolt, and cutting the head off was unnecessary. It could have been reassembled from this point, although it is not correct. Also I banged up the thread end getting it loose from the knuckle.
