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)
SO once it's clamped so there are no gaps , you just push it in a bit and then remove the clamp? should I put some dish soap, anti-sieze or something to help it in?
