I bought a set of the Ironman plybushes from RN, and am having a time installing them. I have all of the bushes installed in the front suspension, but the trailing arms are being a pain in the ass. I have never had problems installing bushings, until these. When pressing in, it is nearly impossible to keep them from tilting to one side, because of the lip on the outside of the bushings. And if I get it started, they get to a point where they will not press in any further, and just expand. This is really pissing me off:mad , and I have carried them to 2 local shops, both with no luck. They are having the same problems I am. Any help would be greatly appreciated, so I can finally get my chassis rolling.

Thanks

Chris

I would call RN they may have sent you the wrong part. I think they would be more then willing to help you out. I have never installed bushes, but I was wondering if you could spray some WD-40 on them so they would slide in better?

Mike, I already tried using WD-40. I got the trailing arm bushes installed this morning, but the top links are being a biatch. RN said they will fit, anyone else have a solution?
