Dude, it takes no time at all to rebush...and you can do it one end at a time so you don't rush, and re bushing costs under $50 - last time I checked the Dakar was about $1200. Now if time/money isn't an object...Tinker said:Spooky - you going to all the trouble (almost) of a complete suspension re-do to just change the bushings? You'll end up cutting &/or boogering all the pins/bolts. Save up for a Dakar!
Do you have anymore info on the grease you are talking about? I have a new suspension that has been sitting around since last Sept. waiting to be installed. I was just going to use moly chassis grease for the bushings whenever I get around to the install.swank60 said:One thing you need to do is order LOTS of that grease. The largest container they sell isn't enough to do all 24.

Hi Loekyloeky said:i've been kicking around the idea of starting a redo of all the suspension bushings w/ poly kit i found online. does this really need 5+ jacks to do the front? i was going to tackle this by myself, but now am a little hesitant.
any general advice for how to proceed?

Ask for "Magic Lube". A clear sticky silicone-teflon lube that water will not wash away.
Comes in large 'toothpaste tube' container.
Wear gloves (rubber surgens style), stuff isn't harmful, just really tough to 'wash off' yer hands . . .
better than KY jelly !
