    Yes there is, gm only! Franz, maak briek pyp los, cable tie hub laat hy nie move. Balljoint los(as jy lucky is het jy balljoint flip, maak dit dan maklik. Dan maak jy shim plek los, links regs nuts los, trek hom uit.

    Hierso vind ek hammer en n staal punch slaan ek hom uit, ek slaan nuwe terug in met ou bushes.

    Insit, in reverse maar wanneer jy kant nuts vas maak trek dit vas in in omtrent die orientasie waar die control arm in normale posisie is as die kar op sy wiele is. Onthou shims terug sit soos hul uitgekom het. Na als gaan check alignment

    As dit nie werk bel my...

    Groete

    I think the place is called Eastrand Spring Works? In Springs? I got pins made for my leaf springs a year ago or so and they gave me those. The pins where specially made for me and everything cost something like R600.

    My swaer se naam is Christo du Plessies. Hy gaan uit en doen die breakdowns.

    I want to spend a few bucks on the Isuzu. I want to replace all the rubbers and ball joints with new, from GM. When that is finished then it is new brake discs, wheel bearings, needle bearings, seals also all from GM. Sick and tired replacing the same parts every few months, then all hoses. SMYlie has 330,000km on the clock. It's time.

    Vossie replaced all the bushes infront with poly bushes on mine. Replaced a few other things with that. He is not expensive at all. Has all the tools etc.

    Bushes like these will not work as upper control arm bushes. You need to have the outer sleeve as well. Look at how the bushes fit into the control arm and you will understand why I say this.
    When U replaced mine, I made use of an impact air wrench, a piece of tubing and a piece of threaded rod. Makes life so much easier.

    This youtube video sort of describe how to do it
    Watch "Control Arm Bushing" on YouTube

    Chris is right, those poly's are not UC bushes.
