ST tire carrier dis-assembly

Just got my bolt upgrade kit from AB, its high time I got rid of those squeaks and rattles. Just a little confused as how the tire carrier goes together. Perhaps I'm over thinking it.I checked RAVE and didn't see anything. I searched here but didnt find exactly what I am looking for. Can somebody show my the light??

OK, so I'm getting things apart. Taking my time as there is a newborn in my house and things are still a little crazy. Once the bolts are out and you move on the the bushings, how the hell do you get them out? Ive tried get a screwdriver in between them to bang it out but its not budging. I've read about using a socket about the same size but unless on of the 2 is out, I fail to see how that's possible. Any tips hints advice voodoo magic or anything else would be appreciated.

I used a big screwdriver and a hammer to get mine out. Doesn't mess em up too bad if you are cheap and want to re-use them

I used an internal bearing puller, it is like a slide hammer but is designed to expand jaws on the inside of a bearing and then you use the slide hammer part to pull the bushing or bearing out.

Many auto parts store will lend you one for free. Once you have one side out you can then use a 15mm socket to push the other side out

If you look at my thread in the small projects section the mcmaster-carr part number for the bushings is listed in there if you need to replace them

Jonathan, the way they usually work is they have hooks on the end on a threaded rod that expand the hooks as you tighten. So you insert the hooked ends into the bushing, tighten a nut which pushes the hooks out.
