Well after doing it today. I had to heat for like 30 sec And then just evenly heat the exterior of the bushing housing. Front were quick rears took a bit more time. Evenly apply heat while the cradle is under load with socket on top and it will slide downward. I used a brass plumbing fitting to make sure the entire bushing dropped and not just the inner part.
Don't be alarmed if it begins to smoke. Some may be melting but will be fine.
