I'll add my .02... I was able to beat the old bushings out of the carrier with a 2.5 lb mallet and the spacer from the ball joint tool. My air compressor didn't have enough guts to actually turn the ball joint tool to press the old bushings out, so I just wailed on it, haha. I was able to press in the powerflex bushings without much trouble, and what an improvement! The steering is amazing, my suspension is no longer the weak link in my handling (my ball joints were roasted too). Its not any less streetable, not harsh at all, just smooth, precise, steering, feels the way factory should feel. But hey, what do I know
