Default Control/trailing/integral/thrust/tension arm bushing removal - 06-19-2020, 11:43 AM

Talking about the monstrosity that keep the fore and aft location for the front suspension. I'm trying to press the bushing out to replace with poly, even had a die made up by a friend to mimic the 31 3 031. Problem is I've got a BUNCH of force on a 20 ton press and the puppy isn't moving.

According to BMW it should press right out


I didn't have access to a torch so I'm going to bring mine in and try again Monday but in the interim I was wondering if anyone else has done it and has a tip and or something I'm missing.

Thanks
