    # 5. Front springs are easier than the rears /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    # 4. Fix the top of the work bench so it quits moving. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    # 3. Use your old cheap drill bits first, after you break your new good ones the old one works better anyway /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif

    # 2. No mater how good it sounds don't use a Roto-Zip to get the rubber out - It makes a mess /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    And the #1 thing I learned

    A 2 pound sledge beats a 3 ounce thumb /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    Best way I found to drive out bushings is to do them like ujoints. Large clamp, small socket to drive with, large socket to drive them into. Unless you have a really deep large socket you will have to cut the bushings in half due to the metal sleeve. I used a 4" angle grinder. Worked alot better then the drill method that everyone said to use.
