It's a rubber bushing inside a steel can. (I think) Steel can needs to come out as well. They are pressed in.... rust up nicely, and become one with the control arm. Major pain to get out on an older truck. Especially one that lived in the rust belt.
Drill most of the rubber out around the center part and push out the rest.
No flame necessary.

Ya know it's crazy, first thing MEN do when they purchase something that requires to be put together is THROW AWAY the instruction's/manual. And yet, everyone here asks if you've looked at the manual....

I did not want to buy another haynes cause i have already bought 2 for this truck. 1 was caught on fire and the other stole by a ex-employee. I really like the detail in the fsm and figured the money would be better spent on printing it out and having it bound. I didnt expect to start this project till this weekend but today turned out to be a real slow day at work. I did look at the FSM and it says the bushings are not replaceable. lol. So can someone look at their haynes and see if it does having something on it or if it says the same. I think i will just remove the control arms and take them a shop and have the old ones pressed out and the new ones pressed in. Shouldnt cost me but about $50.
