Need install help (rear mount bushings)

Has anyone removed the bushings from the rear engine mount? I can't get them out, any ideas?

Thanks.

I used a 1/2" drive extension and a hammer. It's easy if you use a vice, but also can be done if you don't have a vice.

Good luck

I just used a hammer to beat them out, they came out without much trouble. I don't have a vise so I used a 1X4 on the edge of the concrete lip of the garage entrance (where the driveway meets the garage) to get enough clearance to get the stock bushing out. You will have to use an extention or a screw driver to get the small one out all the way. Also, when installing the new bushings, take out the steel center and use the hammer to hammer them in, they will go in pretty easy, then hammer in the steel center inserts and your done. Hope that helps.

Should have just bought the VF. LOL! Back on topic. You could take the mount to a shop with a press and just have them push them out and put the poly ones back in. Easy!

I personally didn't have much trouble with the Prothane mounts and I love the difference the mod made, and for $21, you can't beat it with a big stick!! LOL I thought $70 for the snuber (the alt to the VF) was too much money for what it is, I am happy with my Prothanes :-)
