Where can I find a video showing how to replace bushings on a LR3? Step-by-step, what tools needed, replace 1 or by pairs?

I got the front right and rear left starting to go.

Control arm bushings?  You'll need a fair bit of tools to do them, and most people just swap out the whole control arm instead of changing the bushings as it's a PITA to press them in/out.  About the only specialty tools you need are a ball joint breaker and a large (36mm?  I forget) socket for the axle nut.  It's torqued to about 250 lbs, so a good impact helps there as well.  There are several videos on youtube going through the process.

Rupert,

 

No video, but I wrote a summary a while ago.  You can find it here:

There are lots of different suspension arms (I believe 16), so make sure you get ones that match your VIN, if you choose to replace them.  We have a set sitting in Customs at the moment .... I can post pictures when they arrive (they are however for a Customer).

 

Regards,

 

Graeme

Thanks for the videos, but its the upper control arm bushings. Any web videos on that?

I don't know of any videos, but I can say from experience the uppers are more difficult than the lowers.  It's just harder to get in there for access.

 

I'm assuming this is the front?

The rear uppers are easier than the fronts, so at least there's that.
