Good picture. confused again. So the jaw puller worked for installation of every bushing EXCEPT which ones? In other words, what will i need a press for exactly?

I've seen a thread where someone used a socket and a threaded rod to get them in. Put the socket over the hole in the back, stick the threaded rod/long bolt through the socket through the hole through the bushing, put a washer on the outside on the bushing and crank a nut down on top of it.

So who do you guys recommend for poly bushings? And is having solid diff mounts and poly everything else safe? Or is it still a bad idea?
