I AM CURRENTLY STRIPPING DOWN MY LOWER AND UPPER CONTROL ARMS FROM MY 62. I AM GOING TO REPLACE THEM WITH ENERGY SUSPENSION POLY BUSHINGS. CAN I CUT THE OLD BUSHINGS OUT? DO THE NEW BUSHINGS COME WITH THE SLEEVE ON THEM? THANX FOR YOU HELP!! :biggrin:

You are supposed to keep the outer sleeve in the control arm and reuse it. Fir the front bushing, sometimes it is included and sometimes not. I would get the parts first and then figure out what you need. :biggrin:

i used an air chisle to py them out but i just threw the bushings out including the metal sleve, i think that was only the top arms and the lowers need to be pressed out

you need to keep the lower REAR trailingarm sleeves in the trailingarm cuz those are not included in the energy suspension kits, in the front everything is included so you can get rid of all those. just be sure to keep the REAR lower ones...

when i think about it i think you just need to keep the REAR ones in the lower rear trailingarms...

at least this is how it has been for me all times i've changed bushings but be sure to buy the energy suspension set FIRST to make extra sure, they may have changed something, you'll never know.

*** All i used to get th bushings out of my 64 was a set if channel lock pliers , vice grip , screwdriver , hammer , & bench vise...... I had my buddy hold the a-arm while I pulled the outter bushings out first .. then I punched the center out with the hammer & big screwdriver............. My buddy was using a torch & shit for his bushings on his 62 but, It looked more like a hassel for him than what I did............
