I just slip a box end wrench on the bleeder screw and then put the hose to the catch can over top of it. I can't remember the size of it though. It's been a while.

I think they're 7mm or 8mm depending on the screw

7mm sounds about right.

I encourage the use of a 6 point box end wrench.

all parts are oem rubber....
Finally the end seems to be not far away...I was able to get old bushings out and press the new one's in...I used 6' "C" press from Canadian tire that i got today for about 7$....started putting everything back together. I should be able to be fully done around early afternoon. Will report back.

lol...I was a little mad at this whole subframe trip, that I was not in any type of mood for the pictures..but, yes, I should've...

The car feels way better now...I got rid of the "diff & drive shaft clunk" betwen the shifts, as well as car no longer pulls to the right....the last test remains to be up for passing, is the "rear end" shake above 120 km/h...
Will test this later tonight.
