3605RE: [bmw e28] rear swingarm bushings
- May 17, 2005Steve,
I haven't tried the rear swingarm bushings yet, I was assuming I could
remove the car from the swing arm and press them out. Am I being naive
Where in Canada are you? I'm in Waterloo, ON.

...just wait till you try removing the bushings!
The reason I picked my first e28 up as cheap as I did, the passed owner was
quoted $900 cdn in labor + $100 in parts to change these bushings.
The first one, I cut and chiseled out after soaking the bolt with wurth's
The second, I used my new-gained wisdom and made a tool with ready-rod,
washers, nuts and short piece of steel tube which helped pull the bushing
The first side took approx 7 hours, the second side took 20 minutes.
