Re: How to remove upper control arm shafts?
Drill out the rubber part until there is none left.
Pull off the inner sleeve from the shaft.
Deform outer shell from arm.
Pull out shaft.
Remove the other bushing int he same matter - drill out rubber, deform outer shell.
Install new bushings - with shaft in place - grease shaft where inner bushing rides, antiseize is good, get a length of pipe to fit between A-arm on the outside of the bushing bores, press in place both bushings into arm, remove pipe.
Pipe is used to keep A-arm flanges parallel while pressing.
Might be able to use a large bench vise and sockets or pipe to press in bushings.
Don't forget the shaft.
