<VV> Tight pitman arm bushing

It's MUCH 'easier' to R&R the Pittman bushing on the bench.
Having never used a nylon bushing, I've been told that you loose the
'return' feature when using the nylon bushing.
The bolt should be a slip fit, never press fit.

It did take a fair amount of force to install bolt into bushing, a bit more
than the last one I did.I thought it may take a bit of driving to loosen it
but, after fifty miles it is still just as tight.I think like you said, the
bolt is to tight or, the bushing is to long.Either way, it is a pita to work
on with centerlink on car.Thanks for the response,Jim
