Default control arm bushings

not sure the right forum for this. It kinda covers all cars.

Has anyone changed their front control arm bushings, I have a old G1 H body that I'd like to put new rubber in or maybe even measure up and see if PST might have polygraphites that will work.

Im wondering if it turns into a nightmare to get the bolts out or anything else to keep an eye out for ? I know sometimes the bolts get hung up bad.

I've had em out, It'* fun. The hardest part is getting the steel sleeved bushing out of the control arm without bending it. It took me two six foot cheater bars and a good bit of sweat on those bolts, But getting them out of the control arm is even harder. Had to take a torch to it and smack them. I'd definatly go with polygraphite from PST, I've heard nothing but good about them.
