yep burn them out.... the small one just burn off the bigger lip and slam it out with a screw driver no press needed..... the press will come in handy for the bigger bushings...Trailing arm bushings and wheel bearings.

Liking the progress, i did the polly bushings on my car, i couldn't get the trailing bushing in by hand so i used the weight of the hatch to push the bushing in, worked like a charm!

By the way, what are you using to paint the suspension pieces and what prep did you do?
