Default Spindle Bushings, Replacement

Lower right spindle bushing is worn. I have taken the front end apart but cannot remove the bushing from the spindle. I have the new bushings to replace old. Tried hammer and screw driver. No Luck. Ideas needed!!!!! Thanks in advance.

You've gotta use a big punch to knock it out. But be aware that once you press the new bushings into the spindle they're gonna have to be reamed to allow the kingpin to go back through them.

Thanks guys for the replies. Took the easy way out, bought a new spindle with the bushings already pressed in. Any one need a used passenger side spindle with new loose bushings on the side!!

You shouldn't have done that. I've got a HUGE box full of used ones that have no wear. For every lift kit I install, I get 2 spindles.

More torque specifically, but because it's got more torque, it'll be able to better maintain your speed when climbing hills than the 250 amp controller did. Also, the last 3 or 4 of them that I've sold have come pre-set to speed setting 4, eliminating the need to buy a speed code.
