    Default Universal Bush Removal Tool

    Does anyone happen to have a universal bush removal tool? Something like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Universal-...item5d35bb7aee
    I'm looking to borrow one.
    If no-one does, would anyone be interested in hiring one if I was to buy one? Could keep it in the group and would only be looking at a few pound plus postage

    I had a wee read at it a couple of weeks ago, it is an excellent how to. I'm looking at doing probably every bush on my car over a period of 6 months or so, Trying to get steel pipe etc has proven to be a bit of a headache for me so though by buying a kit like this that it'd save the hassle

    I think on a lot of the bushes you can use sockets as spacers to push the bushes out/in

    I managed to remove a wishbone front bush (old one I had lying about) using an axle stand and spring compressors. Unfortunately removing the rear bush is a whole different story. Going to try source some parts to make my own tool. But if it comes to it I'll end up just buying the universal kit
