I'll buy the twin tube design and genuine. So only time will tell how long they will last.

Getting the old ones out will be the fun part. I just bought a heap of hacksaw blades in case my 20 ton press is not up to the task of pushing the old bushes out.


I have a spare radius arm and a bush if you want to practice. I kept one of the old radius arms as a rotable spare and gave the other one away. PM me if you want to borrow it.

be good to hear how you go pressing them out anyhow.

cheers simmo.

Some folk say they have problems removing & refitting the radius arms, I did them one side at a time and didn't have much problem, each one took about an hour, a 2 ton hydraulic jack is handy in addition to the trolley jack to "rotate" the axle housing a little. ( chassis supported on axle stands)
