    The non destructive way of poly bush removal??

    I've just removed one wishbone this morning, didn't have time to do the both of them.

    I'm gonna send them for blasting and powder coating but i've got powerflex bushes in them already. If they were just bogstandard GM bushes i'd burn them out but they're not that old and i don't fancy forking out the £70 or so to replace hem.

    Any suggestions on how to remove them, damage free?

    Cheers in advance

    Knock the middle metal tube out, and then the poly bits just pull out

    Shouldn't do - I fitted them to mk my3 without tools... I just pushed them home. They may be a bit tighter if the magic grease has dried up, but they should still come out without too much drama
