    They have to be pressed out, or cut out with an air chisel.

    thanks, I figured it was too much trouble and left in the old bushing...the outside was damaged but the inside was still good.

    You will need a press to get the bushing out as well as to get it back in. If you have a auto parts store close by that has a machine shop they can do this for you.
