    I can’t dispute this. If you can get it done for $20, I’d go for it all day. Just be aware, without the tool, it’s not easy, no matter what shop you are. You could save some money, or they could destroy your stuff. If you truly believe in them, I’d go the $20 route and not buy the tool, but I honestly believe despite the allure of cost savings, many will run into trouble going that route.

    I did mine without the tool no problem.

    8-10" threaded rod, a couple washers and 3x nuts, (IIRC)a 19mm socket and 28-30mm deep socket.

    Two nuts locked together and washer behind the 28-30mm socket on one side of the bushing. 19mm socket, washer and single nut on the other side of the bushing. Start cranking down on the 19mm socket and it'll start pressing the bushing inside the 28-30mm socket.

    Pressing them in, you just reverse everything and it definitely helps to put the sleeves into the freezer for a couple hours.
    mikochu and m in sc like this.

    that is basically mnthbx tool, but from stuff around your garage, using the threaded nut/bolt to push/drive the bushing out/in
