radial arm bushings

Just did mine last week the easy way is too remove the nuts on the radial arms first. Then cut the rivets off of the bushing bracket with a air chisel grinder just dont fit easy with the inner fender in the way air chisel works great. Just cut the head of the rivets off and punch them out. Then remove the 2 bolts that help hold the bracket 2 bolts on both sides. On the drivers side you will have too remove the fuel filter in order too put in your bolt that replaces the rivet. Grade 8 bolts are required 3/8" I do believe and lock nuts. Do not un bolt the bushing brackets from each other this is not necessary. Took me and the wife 2.5hr not bad for the first time.
