Definitely Not for the Faint of Heart!

I want to thank the original poster for his write up. It was a big help to me, as I just did the same to my 2000 323i. I also, had to resort to "ghetto mode", as the tool that I had was not strong enough and stripped the threaded rod. Fortunately, because of your advice, I gave up on the tool quickly and just start hacking away. It probably took me 2 hours of drilling, grinding, pounding and swearing to get the rear bushing out- but it did come out! Thanks for you help. Can you be persuaded to do any more projects so I can take advantage of your great illustrated pictures?
