It has been way past time to replace the pivot bushings in the twin I beam suspension of one of my old Ford trucks
these have to be pressed in. Removing the whole I beam to carry it to a press is never part of an equation. Thar can take hours to do , require the spring to be compressed support the truck disconnect the I beam along with the spindle brakes shock steering link the trailing arm plus it is about 200 lbs to mass to carry for a 2 minute job in a shop press.
Also deciding to do them on the vehicle just means only 1 bolt need be removed the beam supported by a hydraulic jack so you ca lower it remove the old bushing use a C type of other suitable press to install the new one raise the beam back in place install the bolt and you are done maybe an hours job to do both of them if everything go according to HOYAL
Well I didn't have such a press and I sure wasn't going to make 2 150 mile round trips to rent one from an auto parts dealer
At least not as long as I had a bit of T1 steel A few 1" nuts and a piece of 1" all thread rod I wasn't.
After making it I tried to press the bushing in using a 1 1/2" combination wrench for the handle
This wasn't going anywhere fast pulling on the end of a nearly 2 foot long wrench with all my strength was wearing me out faster than the bushing was moving make that not hardly moving at all.
Enter my 6 to one 3/4by 1" drive torque multiplier and an 20" long ratchet it still required 2 hands much of the time but the bushing went right in.
Maybe around 100 lbs pull on the ratchet X 6 to1 multiplier on a 1" 8TPI bolt that is one strong clamp
