Trac Bar bushings are done! I used my half inch impact to remove the bolts, didnt even hesitate, had to use a wobble extension to remove the right side due to the transmission lines being in the way though. Burned the old rubbers out with a torch, the outer sleeves I used a air hammer to remove, then I took a half round file to smooth the edges where the air hammer had nicked to remove all the burrs, also used sandpaper to remove any rust inside the eyes themselves. Used a TON of lube and my bench vise to press them in, had to work it in though using a 3/8 extension and a hammer to hep get it started, made sure to use a piece of scrap metal against the new bushing so the vice face doesnt chew it up and they slid right in, no shaving the bushings like some people say to do. The little bit of filing to remove the burrs really helped though as there wasnt a sharp edge for the bushing to get stuck/ripped on.
