When you put in urethane spring eye bushings, you need to remove the old rubber bushing and the outer metal sleeve.

Is there a trick to doing this ?

I think I just invented the least fun method possible, I just beat the holy ****************** out of it.

But there must be a better way ?

I've used a press.

Use a hot wrench on the inner sleeve. It will melt the rubber then you can push the sleeve and rubber out leaving the outer.

Long bolt with a large washer (that is smaller than the diameter of the bushing) on one side with a large socket on the other with a piece of flat stock and a nut. Tighten the nut and draw the bushing through into the socket. Not a very good description, but I used this setup to replace a set of spring bushings when doing a Cal-Track install.

PB blaster and a press has served me well in the past. You also can saw a groove in the sleeve to reduce tension and then push it out.
