Havent posted on here for a while, but am needing some help with my 2001 astra hatch.
Been having problems with the rear squeeking, and also problem with one of the shocks. So i thought i would change the shocks and the rear dampners on the actually axle. Now ive managed to drop the axle off the car, taken out the old bushes and now im needing to get the new ones in.
They slide on to where they are now on the piccys no probs. but no matter how hard you hit them they dont go in. Im after any advice on getting these little buggers in. Im the haynes bible it says you a long bolt, washers, nuts and a socket or metal tubing. is it a case of getting a massive socket (65-70mm) and the winding the bush in to the beam??
If someone else has done these before then would be great to know how youve done it
