Donor cart sounds like your best bet, or new axle assembly.

yes, i have run into this before. There are alot of club cars in the retirement communities i service, and this is about the 6th time i have come across this.

Obviously Club Car can get these bushings, thats why i don't understand?

I am willing to buy them from Club Car, or anywhere , IF i can find them.

To try and fabricate one would be insane. So if someone takes their 01 DS to a dealer for axle bearings, they don't install them? They sell them an entire axle??

I'm not sure if Club Car can get them or not. They probably have no control over what Graziano makes available to them as a service part. But I do know that they don't make them available to their dealers as a service part that you can order.

You are correct, if a vehicle comes to the dealer for bearings and the bushings get destroyed in the process, a new axle is on the menu. However, if the dealer destroys it, they should replace it at no extra charge to the customer in my opinion. It's not the customers fault if they break them.

Have you tried heating the bushing to remove it?

No, i have not tried heating it. I would be afraid that i would get it too hot and compromise the integrity of the bushing.

Do you use a small propane torch? How hot do you get it?

I would start with a propane torch you will not be able to get it hot enough with one to hurt the metal. If that does not work you could use ox/asy but be careful not to melt it. When it starts to change to a red color I would stop there. Once you get it off let it air cool.
