Yeah. I had to burn out the front CA bushing when I did it. Then cut through the shell until it came loose.

I guess that's what I'll do to this one too. I don't have a press so I'm trying to do it with an acme screw and impact sockets.

At least I can take solace in the fact that these bushings will last 30 years or so before needing this again! lol
