Doing the bushes in the rear and pedders want $150 to press out the lower and upper control arm bushes and fit new bushes that I will be supplying .
So I thought that's expensive and jumped in eBay and I can get a 6t press for $165 posted or a $12t for $200 posted . Will 6t be enough to press out the bush ? Just can't decide whether I should get 6t or 12t .

I have a little 6t shop press in the shed at home, it works good enough for suspension bushes.
