Apr 13, Re: How do you remove upper control arm bushings on a TJ? I use a large socket that catches the outside sleeve of the bushing and place it on a press. You can probbably get away with a large dead blow hammer and a good aim at the socket instead of your hands.

You may need the master adapter set that harbor freight has if the adapters in your set don't work with the bushing size. I'm sure you had the axle at its lowest point so tool clearance shouldn't be an issue but please do keep this in mind.

Its like 80 for 8 bushings. I will worn you of this those arms will tear your control arm mounts off your axle! You really do want to look into a johnny joint type arm for the lowers. Nov 17, TJ Jeep Wrangler Forum.
