    Use plenty of Graphite Grease, Coppercoat, Antiseize, or something similar.
    It makes it a dirty job, but far easier and better for the next time you have to change them,
    as this set won't last anywhere near as long as the originals did.
    Make sure you let them settle in for a week or so too, drive a few kays etc., before you nip the bolts and lock nuts right up.
    Otherwise the new bushes with be history in no time at all.
    The right "choice" of words and in the correct order, can help with the installation of some of the harder to get on with chassis bushes.

    As Rod said above...Have Fun

    Cheers, Mick.
