Installation of the nylon inner bushings is a breeze. Drill out the old
rubber bushings, chisel out the bushing shells, clean the bore and use a
small sledge with a block of wood to install the nylon bushing. Only took me
two swings to get each installed. Changed the handling of my 68 Monza
drastically! So much better.
