I have done a ton of bushing replacements but this set just was very different

I feel like you are doing way too much!

Just my two cents!

Mate I think you're being a bit harsh here... there are all sorts of levels of experience within this board and regardless of the value you might attach to a response, they are offered in good faith.

Whether they are right or wrong doesn't make them any less valuable after you asked for help/opinions.

You've already given back a correction/spray that was quite personal so leave it at that, delete the others and move on.

Cheers

... and if you had called them swing arms or maybe used the word "lower" before you freaked out, maybe you would not have got responses that you found so offensive.

See image below. It is designed to be compressed when installing. A small engine piston ring compressor or as others have mentioned, leverage 2 worm drive hose clamps will accomplish the same thing. https://www.amazon.com/Lisle-18500-S...96652412&psc=1

Better version:

No need to freeze them or resort to other extremes.

BMW never designed them to be replaced in the field. USE big time caution when pushing them out. Make sure the bushing tool does NOT hit the face of the arm bore. You can just use PVC material and avoid destroying the arms.

Many posters just cut out the inside rubber and then it was easy to pull/push out the outer shell.

Helpful?
