    So... how difficult is it to replace LCA bushings on your own? I'm doubting that I'm capable of doing it myself, but I'd rather not pay for a shop.

    @Moogle I have a buddy in town with a press. He sometimes works like 7 days a week but is always down to help. Id be happy to lend a hand throughout the process. I have spare LCAs to rebuild too

    Access to an air chisel will make quick work of removing them.

    That makes it much better. Getting the poly bushings pressed in cost me more than I expected. Worthy upgrade, though.

    Not sure how that would come into play. The replacement bushings I used require removal of the bushing along with its metal sleeve. A little heat and the bottle jack pops them right out in one piece.

    @Radarninja had seized bushings on his LCA's and we tried using heat with no luck. Used the air chisel which removed the bushing and sleeve in no time. I also used the air chisel to remove old bushing from the used chevy 63s leaf springs set I have.

    Dooood I wish I could. Not out of the Army yet so no-go for THC and me. Which is ironic cause the docs are so quick to give me oxy, percacet, and all sorts of pain killers. But something from a plant is illegal :facepalm:

    That is a problem I have never encountered. Jack and torch method only works once the arms are off the truck.
    Good to know about the air chisel.

    Huge thanks to @Porter707 and Monica for meeting up with me and the wifey for dinner tonight. Good to see you!

    Anytime any of you degenerates are in sac don't be afraid to holler. We're halfway for Tahoe trips if you Sonoma guys need to crash.

    Also, anyone want to hit up Bowman lake in the next few weeks? Need to start venturing out now that I'm getting more mobile.

    Ah, so if I have seized bushings that might be a problem?
