Maybe Volvo is sourcing it from Alibaba express now?

Don't these bushings press in one way? Seems I remember that they do. When I did them on the race car, they went in easy one direction and nearly impossible the other (either from the inside or the outside, I don't remember which). It's not something I knew but something I found out, then later I think I looked it up and that was in fact the case.

I'm not saying you didn't know this, I just don't see it mentioned.

This is ridiculous and has wasted my day. I shouldn’t have to spend time trying to find a replacement bolt and nut after one trailing arm bushing job.

Do the hardware stores even carry an 8” grade 8 bolt. Lowes gave me a galvanized steel 8” that snapped right in the middle after little pressure
Did you put bearing grease on the bolt?

Don’t you guys just cut the rubber out with a hole saw and cut the sleeve out with a sawzall?

I made my own tool and I used a spring center bolt for a truck [1/2"] it had enough threads[8+"] for the job. Also use a long/high nut used on the U bolts on springs.

Letting the old rubber fall out, cleaning the remains out and popping in a poly bush is much less hassle.

You should not really be snapping the bolt removing the old bushes but it is hardly something to bitch about and only a simple and easy to find bolt.

If pressing them out they want a good clean of the outside first and a soaking in oil before you start the job

The bolts are a wear item. Plan on replacing them after a couple of uses.
