My bushes are rooted, so just wondering how much of a DIY job is it to do the upper bushes? or better on a hoist?

Something I'd probably pay someone to do.. But go for your life if you have the right equipment.

There's only two bolts on each side :P
Definately able to do it on stands at home.
Admittedly I was doing a whole diff swap at the time, which probably made it easier.
I can't comment on the bushes but, never changed them before.

Pressing the bushes out and in isn't too hard, a press makes it easier but I've done them before in a vice (you just need 4 hands :lol: ).

The hardest part is pressing out the old ones, but a bit of RP7 helps things along.
A bit of grease on the new ones and they slip in pretty easy. :)
