You are correct sir!

That's why Mike's (BigSky) bushing tool is so nice: It allows you to extract the stock bushing and install a Group N bushing with the knuckle still on the car.

I pressed out and installed the rear trailing link bushings with a piece of all thread and some creativity. Basically the same thing as BigSky's but not as pretty

I'm looking to do this kinda soon, like next Monday, so I'm probably going to skip the tricky one for now, get the rest of them installed, and get the last ones installed later in the season when I have plenty of downtime

The stock trailing link was replaced with another stock trailing link that happened to have a better bushing in it.
