Remove lower control arm bushings to install the lower cross member of a Skyjacker lift kit on a Chevy 4X4 truck. Learn how to remove lower control arm bushings on a Chevy 4X4 truck in this free Chevy truck lift kit installation video.
All right, now to install the lower cross members for the Skyjacker kit, you have to press out the rear control arm bushing which is right here. Normally to press it out you use a ball joint compressor which is right here. Put the ball joint compressor on the bushing, torque down the torque screw and it'll push the ball joint through. Now that the ball joint sleeve has been broken and pushed through halfway, what I recommend doing is getting the air hammer and tapping each side of the ball - or the ball joint bushing just to get it out. Makes life easier. Like so. And that is how you remove the lower control arm bushing.
