Wishbone bushes

Spent 2 hours fitting bushes and crush tubes:

  • Offside rear bushes x14 & crush tubes x7
  • Nearside front top bushes x4 & crush tubes x2, copper grease the thread
  • Nearside bottom, offside top & offside bottom to go.

My Process

  1. Clean powder coat from wishbone tubes with drum sanding kit
  2. Lightly grease the wishbone tube & bush
  3. Push the bush in place with G-clamp and vice
  4. Use calipers to find width of the bush pair
  5. Grind crush tube to this width
  6. Lightly grease the crush tube and push in with G-Clamp

Had enough of bushes - taking a break
