Well, I received mine. It looks well built to me. Now I have no excuse about replacing all of those dead bushing in the rear suspension.

Be forewarned.... the spindle tool is great, but will not remove a seized bolt. I can attest to that... one side came out easy, the other felt like it was welded in.
Snapped two tools I made...

Needed a 100 tonne press at a over 60 tonnes plus a torch and soaking in transmission fluid before it budged.

Yer, My opinion. They only good for pins that are easy to remove or slightly tight and nearing seizure.

Im not saying they are worthless. They are perfect for that and much better than flogging a good pin out with the hammer and damaging the threaded end.

Wow i bought 4 outer suspension bushings, 2 for each side and forgot to purchase this tool. Is this really necessary?

Wow no im worried on how the shop that replaced all the bushings managed to replace thosw 4 bushings?

It's not always necessary.  Your shop probably has a press.  And since you had your bushings replaced recently you probably don't need it.

The old PU ones will slide out by hand.  The new ones will need to be pressed or hammered (carefully) in.  It's obvious how they fit, they shouldn't have a problem.

You have to pay close attention on the replacing the LCA bushings. There is a long side and a short side. They should go in only one way. If you look at them closely you can tell which side is which. Look in my build thread for more details
