Bored and low budget. rear bushing replacement

Well, last week I finally got around to swapping out my old dif for a low mileage cressida....made a huge difference. Unfortanetly, while I was looking at the underside, I noticed what sad shape the bar bushings were in. I decided to replace them and upgrade a little at the same time with a low budget mod.

Bushings in sad shape.
Thought I'd use some old end link bushings that were laying around.
Drilled bushings, pressed in old sleeves.
Cleaned out all the old crud and rust.
Bushings are too big, have to grind them down a little.
Pressed in bushings with mini vice.

Bushings after they are pressed in.

Washer for a collar and spacer.
New bushings installed and ready to go.
Well after the fact, gave it the twist test on the vise, it seemed to twist more then my liking. So went back and installed a second washer on the other side. Tightened it all up, and up to next to no deflecton.

Bushing replacement/upgrade is just a low cost mod, not really expecting any gains, although considering how bad the old ones were....... Part 2 will be the bar to subframe, have something in mind for that as well.

Maybe someday I'll just go buy some new ones.
