Thanks ETCdude1 for posting this.
I just did my rear, front and wishbone bushing along the change of my right axle. 5 hours total. -minus the trip to Harbor Freight.
Camry V6 1997 manual torque specs:
Rear mount upper insulator bolt - 47 Ft-lbs
Rear mount bracket to engine - 47 Ft-lbs
Rear mount insulator to chassis nuts - 49 Ft-lbs
I've just taken out my mount housing with the bushing after removing the axle which is around 2 hours.
I always take before
pictures and after
pictures. Working on cars things get to be out of place including some memory. So it's good to have a habit of doing that, at least for me.
Removing the bushing was OK, this is how I did it. By using a reciprocal saw, not a press nor a wheel-bearing adapter (which fits the bushing mount rim and mount housing) from HB.
Nailed the mount housing to a board or something stable to stabilize the mount housing.
Used a chisel to chisel the rubber inside the bushing out so a that there's very minimal rubber to fit a reciprocal blade/saw through.
Sprayed some WD40 or penetrating lubricant from both sides and let it set.
Then used the saw to cut in towards the meatiest side of the mount housing, just in case you cut more than the bushing rim. <-IMPORTANT
After the rim of the bushing has been cut (width of the blade) that should give enough room to use a screw driver to evenly hammer the bushing rim out.
I froze the new bushing in the freezer for at least 12 hours this wall make it contract.
Greased up the mount housing where the new mount bushing will go in.
Position the new bushing correctly, remember that the hole is not in the middle of the bushing so you'll need to align it properly. This is to fit correctly with the mount brackets when installing it back on the chassis to line up with the engine. The hole has to align to the mount bracket so that bolts can go in. You do not want to torch the mount housing to press out the mount because it's not aligned. <- IMPORTANT
Hammer lightly the new bushing mount to the mount bracket. Evenly.
Then do everything in reverse to install it back into your engine. And you are done, good job and great work! Save that $300 per mount or $900 per axle and spend it on your next set of tools.
