      Using a brass bar and a hammer, push out the bushing until it is positioned as shown in the illustration.

      Note:

      Do not damage the bushing.

      Tip:

      Pushing out the bushing makes it easier to install the rear upper control arm assembly.

    2. Using a jack and wooden block, keep the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly level.

      CAUTION:

      Do not jack up the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly too high as the vehicle may fall.

      Note:
      • When jacking up the rear No. 2 suspension arm assembly, be sure to jack it up slowly.

      • Make sure to perform this operation with the vehicle kept as low as possible.
