There is a couple ways that we have seen people remove the factory rear cradle bushings. Many of our customers will use a sawzall/reciprocating saw and make two slice from the inner sleeve through the outer sleeve which releases the pressure on the bushings and you can hammer or press them out. I have also had customers use a small propane torch and heat the rear cradle where the cradle bushings are and it will loosen up the glue that help to hold those in and then they can be hammered or pressed out.
