I'm into my suspension rebuild (QA1s etc. etc.) and thought I'd share my first impressions of a relatively easy way to remove the old bushings from your A arms. This technique assumes you don't own a press. It also assumes that you'll be replacing the original bushings with a set of inserts from ES, and that you'd like to keep the original outside sleeves in tact. Sorry, I'm probably explaining myself poorly, and I didn't take any photos!! Anyway, do as Birdman suggested and saw off one end of the metal insert: http://www.ferrarichat.com/forum/showthread.php?t=49955&highlight=bushing+replacement Then get a new gas cylinder for your blow torch and set fire to the bushing. Keep the flame on the rubber for quite some time -- with a large pair of Vice Grips (Mole Grips if you're in the UK) on the other end of the metal insert, you'll eventually be able to twist/pull the metal insert out. Then, keeping the flame on the rubber bushing which will still be mostly in tact, keep it burning until you can push it out (I used the metal insert that I'd just removed in order to do this) -- I had to leave the flame on mine for several minutes. It took me about 10 minutes in total per bushing, and I didn't have to purchase any kind of press. The rubber bushing came out quite cleanly, and according to some sources, it might even be preferable not to use a press when doing this kind of work. PRECAUTION -- please ensure that you do this outside, and that you have a ready supply of water to put out any flames etc.
