    Official Differential Bushing Puller Loan-A-Tool Signup.

    OK. After speaking with Luke at Lindsay, UUC is shipping out bushings to him within a day or two and he should have some out to us within a week. I've had a bushing removal tool made at a die shop and I'll be picking it up tomorrow. I'll work out any bugs this weekend while pulling mine out. This one will be available for 'loan' soon after and I'll be having more made right after a final design is done. How many will depend on how many people sign up on here to use it. Here's how I plan on doing the loan-a-tool program:

    1. I'll keep the list and contact people with an approximate date when a tool is available.

    2. When one is available, I'll contact the next person in line and request $50 via Paypal. Once the $50 is received, I'll ship the tool out via UPS ground.

    3a. Use the tool and return to me within 2 weeks after receiving it and I'll refund $30 via Paypal.

    3b. Use the tool and return it to me within 4 weeks after receiving it and I'll refund $20 via Paypal.

    3c. Keep the tool and use it longer than 4 weeks and you bought it for $50. Unless prior arrangements are made through me.


    Please let me know if you're interested. First-come-first-serve from a list created through this thread so post up.

    If you get it to work just fine, I'm in....I'll find someone with a big enough (heated) garage to do this in since it's 9 degrees out!
    Taking pics of you using the actual tool on the bushing would be appreciated!

    Thanks Man and kudos for getting this off the ground!!!!!

    I just removed and install and modified Energy Suspension bushing. If your work below 50 degrees a little heat on the aluminum helps.

    Removed the bushing tonight while the diff was in the car. The tool worked perfectly and I didn't even remove the hub or half shaft. I already had the exhaust off which made a lot more room. I just dropped the driveshaft, popped the right side half shaft off the snap ring in the diff, removed the front diff bushing bolt and the right side rear bushing bolt completely, loosened the left side rear bushing and used the removal tool to push/pull the bushing out.

    No pics of the tool?
    What tool would the dealers use?

    Search - EWILL posted a pic of the GM one. GM charges somewhere around $250 to $300.

    You can loan the one I had made for $20. It's not like I'm making any money off this. It costs me $5 for a box and about $10 to ship each time. The extra $5 is to try to recover some of the cost of the tool I had made. You can guess how many times I have to loan each one out to recover that money.

    Believe it or not, popping those things gets old after a while.
    I don't even notice it anymore.
    Sometimes it is fun to put it under the carpet runners in the hallway and watch...
