The Rear Upper Control Arm Bushing Tool makes it much easier to change the rear control arm bushings at the differential.

5 Stars   This tool is amazing
By on 9/8/2013
I bought this tool and upper and lower control arms and new bushing for the rear end housing. I didnt know that the bushing didnt come with the metal sleaves. With out this tool there is no other way I could have finished the job and reuse sleaves. The tool pushed out the bushings with ease with out bending or binding anything. Putting the bushings back in was also very easy and I love how the tool will only let the bushing only go so far when being installed. One thing to note is that make sure you use the lube suggested on the tool. I tryed it with out the lube and the lube made a night and day diffrence.

Thanks for the great tool.

5 Stars   A difficult job made easy!
By on 2/5/2015
After reading through the different methods people use for removing these bushings, I was dreading this part of the job. When I stumbled on the YouTube video featuring this tool I thought for sure it was going to be a ridiculous price. I was surprised when I found out how cheap it was. Then I started thinking that its probably because its cheaply made. I ordered it and was again surprised with the quality of the tool. There is nothing there trying to make it seem more than it is. Its exactly what is needed with no spinning rims and neon lights. That made me feel better about buying and trying the tool. Imagine my further surprise when the tool worked exactly as advertised. The rear-end was still in the car and this tool popped out the bushings with little to no effort. It then installed the poly bushing equally as easy. This tool turned the job I was dreading the most into the easiest part of the job. Buy the tool knowing you are making a hard job easy. Its worth every penny and more. These days that is rare praise.

5 Stars   Worked Great
By on 5/6/2015
Image uploaded by Julian G. The tool allowed the bushing's metal housing's to be pressed out with ease, and no air tools were required. With the housings out, i used a press and a stack of 42MM washers to remove the old rubber bushings from their metal housings. Then re-installed the housings with the tool. Once the housing was installed, i easily tapped the polyurethane bushing and sleeve in separately with a mallet. I liked how strong the tool was built, and how easily it was assembled into position around the bushing. Even in the limited space, i had no trouble using the tool with a large wrench and 1/2" drive ratchet. The tool provided the leverage i needed to get the job done with little effort. A Quality built tool, made in the USA!

5 Stars   Awesome Tool
By on 5/19/2015
Like mostly everything from MM; its well-engineered, comes with detailed instructions and does what it says it does.

If you don't have air tools, or a press, this tool is what you need. Removes and installs the bushings easily with no fuss.

The only thing I noticed is that when you first start to use the tool to remove the bushings, you can't stack all the washers like the instructions say to do. You have to push the bushing out a little bit with the tool and 1 washer, disassemble the tool and then you can fit all the washers on it.

1 Stars   Didnt work
By on 3/27/2015
Bought this to help change the upper axle bushings on my 1980 Cobra mustang, the rear axle is out of a 88 gt. The upper axle bushings on my car where smaller so i tried to use the smaller bushing cup and press washer to remove it but the press washer is to big to pass threw the housing to remove the bushing, after an hour trying to grind it down to size it was still to big to work. Unfortunately this purchase was a waste of time and money on this job save yourself time and money and just drill the bushings out

5 Stars   must have
By on 4/11/2015
i am so glad i purchased this tool along with the bushings. you have to re-use the metal sleeve that houses the bushing. which you have to press out of the axle. even after the sleeve is out, i had to "carefully" use a screw driver to remove the old bushing. also used a propane torch to the out side of the sleeve to release the bushing. you absolutely need this tool to do this yourself.

5 Stars   Neccessity for your toolbox
By on 2/19/2015
I bought this tool to change out the upper and lower control arm bushings on my 98 Cobra because I was told I needed a puller of some kind to do this operation while the rear end was still on the car. I am SOOO glad I bought this puller! Made it a breeze to press out the old bushings. Turned a tough job into a short simple one. A must have for the do it yourselfer's toolbox!!!

5 Stars   Worth its weight in gold
By on 5/19/2015
Bought some new arms since the Mac bushings were falling apart, except for the uppers.... After wasting a significant amount of time doing the first one with an air chisel, I bought this tool(planning on doing another car soon as well). From reading the instructions to the time the bushing was out was 20 minutes or so, construction is solid. Would buy again

2 Stars   long wait for shipping
By on 9/1/2014
I waited over 10 days to get this item. LMR is usually very good at fast shipping. The long bolt broke the first time it was tightened (maybe defective/just weak). I replaced with hardened bolt just a little longer and kit now works good for intended use

I'm sure this could be made very easily. I know all the little tricks to remove the upper bushings. I have a busy schedule with work. I decided to give this a try and it works flawlessly. No trouble removing old bushings from the differential with this.
