    Wondering how others are changing bushings. There is not much of a lip to tap them out. I don't see a tool you can buy but maybe there is something out there??

    I went with completely new rollers from TP.
    1000mi on them and no issues.

    Same here, stockers trashed by 600 miles but the TP held up for 4000 looking perfect.

    Use a socket to pound then out, doesn't take much. Then just press in the new ones. Don't need a tool at all.

    One side for roller and the other for weight. Always easier whit the right tool.;)!

    Good idea with the washers. Trying to get my vice just the right opening is tough with such a small lip on the rollers.

    A Vice with a small socket works well for me.
