I'm installing a lift on my 4x4 '04 Ram 1500. Instructions and service
manual call for a special tool: #8682 to remove the bushings in the
frame that hold the lower control arm. My question is do I need this
tool if I'm not re-using the bushing? The kit has bushings
pre-installed. The tool is over $270 and not available until Aug. I
can't wait that long to install my lift. Anyone have experience with this?
Thanks for the info, I had one of these on order until I canceled the
order today, because it was on back order. I improvised and got the
bushings out of the frame the hard way. I used a HUGE c-clamp, a steel
cup I found laying in the shop and some parts from the factory shocks
that I removed. It was interesting to say the least, but it worked.
