This doesnt seem to be a real hard job...maybe 6 hour job but will be more than 1/2 way there when taking pumpkin out (taking pumpkin out to take to a shop to have wavetrac or Quaife installed....dont want to set back lash LOL!!). Will a shop have to press these out or can I do this?
In conjunction with a rear sway bar as the subframe has to be dropped a bit to r/r a rear sway bar. To avoid duplicate labor, I'd wait to to lsd, rsb and rear subframe bushings at the same time.
