More than enough. I can do it fairly quiclkly now. 30 minutes a side.

another tip, the trailing arm has a beveled edge. MAKE SURE you push the new bushing in on THAT side of the trailing arm. It acts as a guide to get it started. Of course make sure the bushing is clamped with a large hose clamp. Keep tightening the clamp til the bushing is fully compressed (no gap in the splits)
