    Has any one removed one of these? Bently says to drop the diff a bit then press it out. I have the diff off of the car so it is accesible, but what do I use to press it out? I would like to leave the diff cover on but if necessary I'll remove the cover and then maybe I can get a shop to press it out. I have a IE urethane diff mount bushing ready to go in.

    Looking for advice on how to best proceed.

    Thank you!

    Manually removing/reinstalling bushings like this are a major pain without a press. You can remove them by carefully cutting from the inside with a Sawzall. However, putting the new one in is near impossible without the press.

    This is one of those jobs I leave to a shop with special tools: its not that much labor so shouldn't cost much.
