On the rubber bushings, the best thing I have found is that if you put a bolt thru a bushing and tighten it real tight so you can a wrench on it and put some twist on the bushing, squirt carb and choke cleaner where the rubber is adhered to the outer sleeve. It tends to cause the rubber to release from the outer steel sleeve. Then all you have is the outer sleeve to remove. Way better than a torch to burn out the rubber....yuck!

Hassle, you say?...try changing a broken one on a Manta in a gas station (NOT a service station) lot on the way home from work...balljoint broke as I pulled up to the pump. The outer end of the control arm caught on the edge lip of the wheel preventing further catastrophe.

It'll go easy....
