    Finally got mine done today. Mine were shot.

    Pretty straight forward.

    Three things to consider.

    1)Make sure you have a 2 foot breaker bar for the bolts, mine were hard to break loose.
    2)use an acetylene torch not a propane if possible to heat up the bracket to remove the rubber inset.
    I used the propane torch on the first one and it took quite a while 15 minutes to get it out and made a mess.
    I then used the acetylene torch and it popped out in 3 minutes and a few minutes to burn out the inside clean.
    3) I used the channel locks to get the new bushings in, took a while going back and forth from side to side.
    The 2nd bushing I used a large hammer and went in with two hits useing antifreeze as the lube.

    Great product

    My supercharger is being rebuilt right now so will not know for another week or so,
    I had a small vibration at 30-35mph and I bet it’s from the one bushing that was totally destroyed

    Your order was placed Nov 22nd at 1:16 p.m.

    A confirmation email was sent at 1:16 p.m.

    I received a message saying you did not receive the confirmation and resent the same confirmation Nov23rd at 12:41

    Its an automated system. I dont see that you received your confirmation one day late. Perhaps the original confirmation email ended up in your junk mail box?

    Front ends feels tighter, one of my diff bushings was totally shot and not holding anything.

    Easy job to do.

    Not enough to have a build thread.
    Has anyone installed these with a press? Does it make it easier or do you basically have to melt the old bushings out?

    I took the remaining bits out with a nylon brush on a drill. I couldn’t seem to get the rest of it out with my propane torch. Once it’s all out they just slide in and don’t need a press.
