Reading my chilton manual on how to remove the factory bushings seems like a job and a half. The vehicle is a 1988 broncoII. Can someone lead me in the right direction? All i wanna do is replace the factory bushings with some 3 degree bushings so i can align my frontend.

Axle is a dana28 fyi

just drive it between the base and the bushing. good luck getting the pinch bolt out. recessed 12 point head....grrrrrrrrr!!!
i used a bolt out remover and it did the trick. then i replaced them with grade 8 allen bolts. do you have access to a rack or are you just doing a driveway alignment? because if your doing it the right way there is a chart that will tell you which slugs you need for X amount of caster change etc etc.
but first you need a reading.
oh yeah and on a side note when i hit mine with the air hammer they popped right out :)

air hammer with chisel bit
X2 - all you do is loosen the top ball joint pinch bolt, take the air hammer and put it on the camber cam, pull the trigger, and work it in an upward fashion. It should pop right out - then put the new cam in, and you're off to some alignment fun.

thats been in their a while, just keep at it, it'll come loose, but i don't see where you have been hitting it with an air hammer? the chisel should be making a pretty obvious marks where your hitting hit. Isee one small spot that looks like it got hit once?

This is only on the D35, the D28 uses the ball joint castle nut to hold the bushing in i used a bolt out remover and it did the trick. then i replaced them with grade 8 allen bolts. do you have access to a rack or are you just doing a driveway alignment? because if your doing it the right way there is a chart that will tell you which slugs you need for X amount of caster change etc etc.
