oh please, I work 24/7 man. Supporting India, Netherlands, and China requires some stupid hours. I don't feel bad taking breaks throughout the day. And this coming from the guy who's made his works bathroom an internet sensation.

I've seen a bunch of questions on how to get out stuck subframe bushings out of the chassis. Also I tried a tool to remove the subframe bushing from the subframe. Didn't really work but got me to where I could remove the casing really quick!

Wouldn't a shop press make life a LOT easier on all these bushings? I was planning on just getting one of the harbor freight units when I did mine. Also, for the stuck sub-frame bushing, why taper with the step drill? Wouldn't that reduce the bite from threading the bolt in?

A press is next on my major tool "to buy" list. But I just don't have the cash or time to get one right now. The $8 tool was worth a shot lol.

I tapered just the uneven part of it. The bolt wouldn't go in straight otherwise. Then after I cracked out sections, I kept at it until it was just completely shot :(

well mine are original so I'm sure I'll be doing the same thing...Helps to actually see it, reading threads and picture just don't get the message across sometimes.

Yea exactly. I'm trying to make videos of the random things you read about on forums but don't normally get to see it done on the car. This is one of those PITA things we all wind up dealing with. Too bad I never get more than 150 views on any 1 video unless it's a stupid video. Why do people like my stupid videos? The less effort, the bigger the video.

If you get your SEO keywords right I would think you would get a slow and steady stream of views. Most people don't really care to watch a tech video until they need it. Stupid videos are entertainment, much easier to rack up hits.
