[QUOTE=boardgeneration;4395603]Thanks for the info! I have a vice if I can't press them in by hand. The fact that they need a glue to hold them in makes me worry a bit tho. But I gotta do something fast. My shifting and ride quality are horrible lately.[/QUO

All I did to get my large bushing in was I put the grease inside the dog bone and put some on the bushing itself then put the dog bone mount on the ground then I set the large bushing on the dog bone and pushed one side in then twist and push on the bushing and it will slide right in. The smaller bushing I did pretty much the same but once I got one side in good enough I used a hammer and hammered it in the rest and it popped right in. Total time for me that it took to do it this way was about 15minutes which included the removal of the mount and pressing the new inserts in and reinstalling the mount.
