Front wishbone bush part number?

Post by mijfife » Sun Dec 18, 2016 4:29 pm

Hi guys, I need to replace the front most wishbone bushes on the front arms of my 1991 TZD. I've seen some on Ebay which say they are the equivalent to part number 95637690, are these the right ones for my car?
On a plus note, it looks like the rear bushes have been done fairly recently, prior to me buying the car and a quick check today revealed that both pins are moving freely, so that should make the arm removal a bit easier.I have access to a hydraulic press at work too. Surely I can't have found something relatively easy to fix on my BX? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Cheers Jim

Yes they look right to me front bushes are plain rear bushes have a "top hat" on one end, for the sake of a few pounds i would change fronts and rears for peace of mind regardless. These can be done without a press just a good drift usually gets them out, and a big vice.

From memory (I did a batch of them a while back) it's actually easier to do them with a big vice - I've got a press and it's hard to get it all lined up on one side due to the other side being in the way!
