For the front eye bush on the leaf springs, the new King Springs came with rubber ones fitted, so I assume I'll need to take them to a suspension joint to have them removed? Theyre pressed in?

yeah there pressed in - and need to be pressed out.

but if they are new springs, and bushes, then why not leave them there?

Rubber in my opinion is better left there...

Nah, I want Nolathane, the red blobs look cool under the car - it's about the only reason I can think of to justify swapping them over!

yeah in that case it'll be another trip to the susp place to get it pressed out.

But you might be able to fabricate some sort of tool using a g clamp to get it out.

use a tube slightly bigger than the bush but same size as the eye, then another tube slightly smaller than the bush. Get a flat piece to go on both ends of the tubes, then use the clamp to try and press out the bush. I have never tried this, and don't even know if it makes sense, but see how you go!

hahaha during the last install day event in WA we came across the exact same issue... frank came to the rescue with a blow torch.. those puppies came out straight away lol

point is.. you can remove them yourself.. it's not over difficult.. and yes.. a blowtorch is overkill

For $10.00 and a 5 minute drive down the road not worth my while DIYing it.
