    Need to change my n/s front, front bush do I need a press to put the new one in?
    And can I replace it without removing the rear bush( I'm thinking I could swivel it like a hinge)

    whip the whole wishbone off Don, it's an extra minutes work, and you won't be struggling trying to press a bush in with the arm still attached!

    Not sure about the press, but I thought it was required, unless you make up some sort of tool using thread bar and washers....
