    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Those cradle bushings were installed with LONG TERM being the goal. The cut out the center and sawzall the shell may be the best option; or burn out the bushings and use something to create a kink in the shell to push it out.

    I, for one, and super excited about the cradle bushings. No amount of alignment adjustments are going to make up for the stock bushings wiggling the cradle around like a baby in a rocker. One may be able to run more sedate rear alignment settings and get better performance as well as tire longevity.

    Thanks for taking on the project Revshift.

    Re: REVSHIFT Rear Cradle Busings

    Just want to throw a shout out to the quality customer service of RevShift. They took my impatient ass complaints in stride and even took a $40 hit on shipping for my cradle bushings via express mail to get them to me after I screwed up on my order. Doing good work RevShift, look forward to my next purchase once you release the next set of bushings!! Highly recommend them!

    started on the install of these Monday. Pictures will be coming soon but what I can say now is what a royal PIA. Not with the new bushings (or at least I don't think so as I haven't tried to put them in yet) but with the removal of the stockers. Eight hours later I have one bushing almost out. Learned to date:

    Hole saw method did not work for me with the cradle just dropped. The rubber melted back together and I couldn't cut all of the way through. My 1/2 drill just wouldn't drive the large hole saw well and without coming in from the top, which I didn't have enough room for, I don't see how this would work.

    Burning might work but the flames are around the gas tank, brake hose, and ABS harness and just makes a hell of a mess.

    What seemed to work best was to drill out a hole large enough to get a sawzall blade into and cutting the bushing to remove the center metal cylinder. Remember to use a wood blade not metal or the rubber will melt back together as it did with the hole saw. Then use the sawzall to cut the outer metal ring. This this thing is thick. I kept worrying about cutting into the cradle because I had no idea about the thickness. I will get a couple of pics up to illustrate.

    All in all this bushing removal sux. It likely took me Ionger than most because of my fear of cutting into the cradle but I would rate it in terms of difficulty/time as harder than headers and easier than heads.
