Unhappy Body mounts for a crew cab

I have a 1996 F 350 Crew Cab and I know I have blown the drivers side rear rubber body mount. I can see parts of it still squeezed in between the frame and the cab. I went out today to replace this one and the rest with Polyurethane ones that I order in. I was able to remove/loosen all of the bolts but now how do I remove the bushings, I was lead to believe that they should just pop out with a little bit of work with a bar. Also the rear one on the drivers side do I need to drop my front Fuel tank to change it out ?

Floor jack and a 4x4 to take the weight off the bushings. leave all bolts loose and one side at a time.

Drop the tank or find some one with little hands.

some can be stubborn to separate the upper and lower steel sleeves. I had to use a chain and a bolt threaded into the bottom of the bushing. Loop the chain around a floor jack base. Raise jack until it contacts frame and acts like a big f'in puller.

Well finally had the chance to get the body mounts done this weekend, after a little bit of pre planning and looking at it. I decided to take the box off for another project I was doing so I took advantage of the space I had. All and all they where not to bad to do, little bit of a blood a few loud words and it all was good. Zach when you do it just make sure that you have another set of hands to help, I had my 12 year old son so it was good father son time as well.

Good luck when you do yours.

Just in case the body mounts are the same as the IDI CC, here's a write-up of the swap:
