    Does the LCAs you ordered come with bushings? or are those bushings you're talking about going to be for when you rebuild your stock LCAs?

    Oh ok, I had pelfreybilt powder coat my front bumper which I installed 6 years ago, and the powder coat is flaking pretty bad now and starting to rust the bumper.

    I'm going to take my bumper off and send it to Seattle Powder Coat, they did my rear bumper 4 years ago and it still looks brand new. It wasn't cheap my rear was $425 and they quoted me the same for the front. But they have a really good prep, sandblast and powder coating process that's meant for marine applications so i figured it's a good investment.

    Just picked up a 12k synthetic smittybilt winch on Amazon for only $500, so I need the bumper redone.

    It doesn't take a ton of force to press it in. You just need something flat that wont poke the seal. A wooden dowel would be fine, or a big ol socket.

    I'm a fancy bitch so I 3D printed a tool to do it...

    I have a new/un-opened OEM seal in Renton if you need it. I bought it with the ECGS bushing but ended up not needing it.

    Thank you for clarifying, as I was thinking about it I wondered if it would need a bit more persuasion than just using your hands.

    Stuff and things... maybe a little rust
    Yeah, these LCAs have the bushings and ball joint all installed, straight replacement for stock. I did have to drill out a little material inside to fit the bolt for my LCA skids but it wasn't much.

    When it was all said and done with the amount I spent on a dozen cans of paint and stuff to prep I probably spent 75% of what powder coat would've cost.

    Yup I made that mistake with my sliders too. They are welded on now so I have to clean them, tape up my truck and coat them in truck bedliner. Take it to Seattle Powder Coat when you're ready to get it redone.

    Lol plenty I don't know. More like being like @bobsuruncle and having to do things multiple time.

    As for the diff seals...soft face hammer is all I use. Just tap around the edge in circles. The bearing....pretty sure I used a bearing/seal driver for that? Been awhile since I've done one

    I used a piece of PVC with the right OD to press in a similar oil seal on my pressure washer.
