Hi all,
Replacing all my bushes in my falcon with Superpro ones, I have removed/reinstalled all the bushes and i'm now reassembling the car however I can't seem to get the upper control arm in as it has bulged out a little... my worry is I was supposed to remove a steel sleeve with the original bush? Can anyone confirm this? And if this is the case, would I get away with removing and replacing the bushes that are currently in it, or would this likely f**k them?

Thanks, Thomas.

To answer my own question, you do need to remove the outer steel sleeve and the bushes weren't damaged (with the exception of a minor tear on one) by removing, then replacing them.

Yes you did need to remove the bush, if you didnt damage it pressing it in then it should be ok coming out .
