Just curious if anyone knew an easy way to press hourglass shaped bushings into the top and bottom of shock?

I dont think there is an easy way. the only way i can think of is with an hydraulic press or air press. i dont think you can just beat them in

Soapy water and a BFH or a bench vise

drill the old ones out if used andput a big socket on one side of shock and grease bushing than use smaller socket to push from other side.

Use wheel bearing grease. its amazing what a difference it made. i was able to put them in by hand, well mostly. just a little persuasion from a bfh.
