Rear control arm bushing replacement

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here reused the sleeves that are pressed in? Or are you guys removing them? I'm on the fence about it. I plan on going with Energy Suspension bushings throughout.

The sleeves must be removed from the control arm.  They are part of the bushings. The new bushings will come with an inner sleeve, an outer sleeve and rubber in between.  Look at the pictures of the new replacement bushings.

Good luck!!

I've always removed the shell. You can cut some spacers to fit inside the control arm so you don't crush the stamped steel when you are removing or reinstalling them. I usually use angle iron.
