Default 80 Suspension Bushing Replacement

Looking to replace the sway bar, panhard/lateral control rod, and rear upper/lower control bushings on the 80. Front leading arm bushings have already been replaced so I won't be touching those.

The FSM isn't exactly helpful. Page SA-119: Rear Lateral Control Rod Removal says:
Quote:
1) Remove rear wheels
2) Remove rear lateral control rod.
Is this best done with the suspension at full droop with the axle secured? After pulling the control rods, the shock should be the only thing left supporting the axle, right?

Is this a bushing that can be pressed out with a tool rental from an auto parts store or should I be looking at using a shop press?

Parts diagram for your time:

i didn't do much out of unbolting it and adjusting cherry picker height to make installation easier

I'm in the same boat. I need to do my rear control arms. What do you use to press the old bushings out?

Toyota specifies an SST in the service manual or you can use something like this kit in the first image. One cup is the size of the outer metal sleeve on the bushing, one cup is slightly larger. Press the bushing through the control rod into the cup or with a shop press, space the control rod and press the bushing out onto the floor as so:

I did all 14 with professional assistance a few years ago. Big job. Worth it.

Be sure to loosen/tighten nuts/bolts from the proper side. On some you spin the nut, on others the bolt. They have ridges under the nut/head to help lock them in place.

Ooh, that's definitely good to know. FSM neglected to state that but does state that the nuts (90170-18007, qty10 IIRC) are not reusable. Thank you.

Managed to change the lateral control rod bushings and sway bar links. Couldn't find anything similar or comparable to use as an SST for the upper and lower control rods on the rear axle, 53 and 60mm diameter.
Does anyone have an SST for this purpose? Absolute Wits End has some, but I'd really like to avoid paying $100 for tools that I won't likely use in the next 15 years.
