Default Rear suspension bushing tool

I have the Whiteline Plus bushings for the lateral links and trailing arms and have access to a press.

I would like to know however what tool (brand, PN, etc.) I will need to effectively press out/in the rear trailing arm bushing located in the knuckle.

Thanks.

The rear trailing arm bushing in the knuckle is very very easy to press out.

I had a harbor freight bushing press kit that I was going to use, but the heavy duty c clamp in the kit couldn't really fit right without taking off the rotor, so I tried to use a normal cheap c clamp, and the bushing popped right off with little force or trouble.

didnt even have to use a socket or anything, just put one clamping side on the bushing, the other on the knuckle, and tighten.

Thanks for the feedback.

I have big sockets so that's not a problem. I thought about a c-clamp fastwrx25 and I have a couple of those.

I don't do too much work and did not really want to spend $100 or more on a bushing install/removal kit.

Now if it stops raining out here and my friend is around I can whip the entire bushing in/out in a few hours.
