    I would like to remove the Bushings from the TRD Tundra Swaybar End Links as I would like to powdercoat the Swaybar and End Links.

    First, can the Bushings be pushed out of the End Links without using a Mechanical Press?

    Does the Metal Sleeve in the center of the Rubber Bushing get pressed out first or is the whole unit (Rubber and Metal Sleeve) pressed out as one unit?

    Any insight? :confused:

    Thanks!

    ...Glenn :)

    I would imagine its pressed out as one piece and a press would be needed.
