Pedders bushings.............install.....
 
Swapping my bushings slowly but surely. I guess I'll end up changing them all soon. :rolleyes:

As I get to each one, I'll shoot some vid in case anyone wants to see how I did it. I'll just update here as I go.

But here's a little trick I learned from Pete at Pedders to get the bushings out. I made sure I got the right length bolt and the perfect size catch to be able to do the ones on the spindle/knuckle.

May be helpful.

I have no video editing program so all I could do is use YouTubes options and but them together. I'll try and make it shorter later.

i used some 3/8" ready rod, and a few nuts/washers and the holesaw. removed factory bushings intact.

You used a holesaw too? :laugh:

I got it because it was the perfect size to use while doing it on the spindle. Plus, I didn't have a socket big enough and a socket that big cost more that then holesaw. haha

It just gets tight on the car like that. I had to find something that would fit in the tight spot.

Great video!

1 1/2 inch holesaw? Worked pretty good! The fire vid scared me :laugh:

Don't play PQ's videos around kids not use to cussing.

Great Video though.

Something easier to use and wont ruin the hole saw is iron pipe and some washers. Use a screw on clean out with a hole drilled in it and same idea you had with the holesaw.

I actually looked for some pipe but didn't want to cut it and had to buy a length. It was easier and quicker at the time to just buy the 5 dollar hole bit. Down on the spindle it's just really tight. Had to get the exact right sizes. The method is the same.

I agree with you completely. In my area I can get very short sections of pipe with threads on the ends. I used the pipe method when I rebushed my old fiero. Never thought of using the hole saw. It is a really good idea though.

I used a pair of bearing buddy's for a trailer and took out the grease fittings and put some washers in side with a snap ring. it fits perfectly over the stock bushings.

Very Nice Video PQ :thumbsup:

Well thanks to this write up I bit the bullet and bought me some pedders. Should finish up my suspension nicley. I've got Pfadt Springs, Adjustable Sways, Rear Trailing arms. BMR Center Tunnel brace, And now Pedders Bushing inserts. I feel like I should order something from Hotchkis so they don't feel left out....

Kyle.Gilmour 06-08-2011 04:07 PM

were this for full bushings or only the inserts?

PQ 06-08-2011 04:30 PM

This was just my trailing arm bushings.

I had done the inserts the day before.
