Who has a press?

I need the rubber mounts to my roll stops pressed out and some Prothane inserts pressed in. Anyone locally have a press to do this?

back when I had my grand prix GTP... I got them really hot and the pressed them out... not like torch hot, but fairly hot and then just pried it out.. a lot of people on the internet claim that won't work, but it did for me... I do recommend wearing something like some welding gloves, lol

I was going to burn them out but pressing the inserts in is a big pain and much easier with a press. If it comes down to it I can do it but a press would save me a lot of time.

Let me know if you find someone who will do this. I have considered replacing some bushings on my car but haven't found anyone with a press that can do it at a reasonable price.

You can email me through the forum. I work in the shop every night after work, and Saturday and Sunday.

Thank you for helping out Lon. I know I've been in this same situation before without a press.

No problem. I've been there as well. Now I'm fortunate enough to have a shop so I help when I can.


I also weld, but I charge for that.
