Diy maintenance

As we says in Dutch "whatever you do yourself, you do it better"

Got my rear wishbone powerflex bushes changed, in reverse. Duh. Had to cut the end to be able to remove them. Cause i don't have a press.

Hmm, you should have still been able to pop these out without a press. Did you remove the insert before trying to remove the outer bush from its housing?

I've tried, didn't see another solution at the time. That's what's happens when you are a bit stubborn. And wanted to take one trip less onto the pit. I inspected the housing and made my own conclusion on how it would fit back.
