Has anyone used this kit? the instructions say you burn out of the rubber of the old bushing, but you keep the metal sleeve of the old bushing installed and then press the new poly into the old metal sleeve. I am just wondering if anyone has had success with this kit and procedure/

Its pretty common on Lexus Lower control arm bushings and Im sure other cars, shouldnt be any issues. Just need the right tools.

Just say no to poly.

They squeak, transfer a ton of noise, vibration and harshness, they'll bind and rip if not properly lubricated. They'll rot out pretty quick too.

Overall, I challenge anyone to prove they offer a real benefit over a good, new OEM rubber bushing.
