I'm trying to remove/replace the threaded spring bushings from the frame on my 57 Chevy 1/2 ton project. I have a whole set of bushing pullers and drivers, but nothing that will fit the threaded ones that are in the spring hangers. I was thinking of using one of the old threaded pins and a deep socket. Is there a tool still made for this job? Thank you.
Thanks. Do you use the same method to install the new ones? I was thinking it would be a good idea not to bang on the new bushings. There is a thread on the tech forum that discusses using a carriage bolt to remove them, but I don't want to distort the new ones as I install them. Thanks.
I use this method with a longer bolt and a 1" pipe t to pull against with the new bushing pushing into place while removing the old one. A one step procedure. Out with the old and in with the new. It seems a little quicker.
