Default Diff bushing install?

Well, working on the install for kdt905 (positive power rear diff front bushings) and i burned out the middle of the bushings...howwwwww in the heck do i get the sleeves out? also, why is every single cross member i see pictures of online plain silver and aluminum? pretty sure mine is steel...and black...there seems to be very little detailed info on this install, so any help would be immensely appreciated...thanks guys

take pictures.

if they are bushings i hope your on a lift and the best way to get them off is a bushing press but if you melted it off then i'm not sure. hence take pictures. i did inserts which were easier.

well the insert only takes care of one side...and i will try and get some pictures tomorrow, tried with my phone, not gonna show a bit of detail haha i'm going to see if i can find the right sized slug at work tomorrow and possibly use the press there...reason for not doing that in the first place, the press is a piece of crap and in terrible shape...bad enough that i'm rather nervous about using it

alright, if you can find a shop that has the right size slug and a press, piece of cake...if not, use a propane torch to burn out the rubber...a screwdriver helps to remove the burned rubber and pry and such...when you have the rubber out, you will need to throw the whole thing in a vice and where the lip is, put a chisel in there...start beating it inward and kinda go all the way around it...it will slowly start to come out, but if you have a hacksaw and are good with it, you can cut just through the sleeve and then take a hammer to it and it will come out far easier...from that point, you are golden...bushings slide right in and make a HUGE difference in the feel of the car under acceleration and when shifting...pretty surprising to be honest have fun

i know those inserts and bushings are fun. i'm going to do my last subframe inserts today. i dont have all the tools you do so its on my friends schedle.

that does look like a lot of work trying to get that subframe part off. but if your under there already its easy to do just takes a little time and effort and yes you do feel it. great job glad it went well for you
