Go see Charlie for a quote and save yourself the aggravation. These can be a pain to remove without the proper equipment.

I have done the subframe bushings on the roadie using IE bushings. It took me all day. I used a homemade extractor made of galvanized pipe fittings for a total cost of about 30 bucks. I expect to do the Coupe much faster since it doesn't have the Butt Strut and I have done it once already.

The only advantage of the tool is that you don't have to entirely remove the subframe.
