    Default Rear suspension bush tools ?

    Been looking over the old posts, but can't see a definitive answer.

    Has anyone bought or seen a puller / press tool for the rear suspension trailing arm bush ?

    All those on e-bay seem to be for Vectra B, as do the catalogues I've found for tool factors online. ( or do these fit ? )

    Thanks Mark

    that's always been plan B. Once the bushes turn up I'll search the garage / second hand tool stalls to make a puller up.

    Just wondered if there is the correct bit of kit readily available....

    Sometimes can make one out of a socket set and a long bolt.

    Just realised we have wandered onto upper arm bushes - not the trailing arm I'm looking into. Has anyone changed this, and do you know of a tool available off the shelf ?

    If not, I can bodge one together, but hey - if I don't ask....

    Does the metal in the bush extend either side further than the rubber?
