    Wishbone rear bushes

    Planning a big suspension overhall soon - got new rear arms and bushes and was planning on doing top mounts and wishbones at the same time.

    I was going to replace the rear bush in the front wishbone with the TT none-voided bushes but dont know if these can be pushed in without the use of a press. Anyone know?

    I would recommend pressing them, however I did fit a set once using a bench vice....

    Vice will work, just hard to get it straight. Which is important as the top side needs to sit flush with the wishbone

    Thanks all. Press it is then. Will remove them DIY and cycle them to the local garage to press in
