Bushing replacement

Are u talking front or rear bushing in the leaf springs??? Ether way u are going to have to drop the leafs, remove bolts, when removing your bolts spin the bolt only with an impact to crack the bolts lose first and then remove the nuts. This way the bolts will turn out freely after u remove the nuts. Use lots of penetrating fluid!!!! Once the bolts are removed u can then drive the bushings out, these are not going to be easy but with lots of patience and elbow grease they will come out....
Good luck:cool:

Most of the early Nova leaf bushings are just rubber hat style bushings. They should just pull out by hand and not require driving out.
