Trust me get the proper tool http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DP5NP5Y/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00DP5NP5Y&linkCode=as2&tag=bullshitkor01-20&linkId=DYLP7H5UMB6QGGS3
This project was kind of a shit show. if anybody is serious about doing their own bushings and ball joints on the E46 BMW, I highly suggest spending the money and getting the proper bushing tool kit. Having the kit will save you a big headache in the long run. I’m sure there are other methods that you will be able to figure out that will be easier than the way i did it. However this is the way i did it and it was a pain in the ass. At the end of the video I mentioned that I didn’t change the rear trailing arm on the car, however I will post a follow up video where I did it a few weeks afterwards.
In this video we remove all and replace
the e46 RTAB, rear ball joints,trailing arms, and new springs. Most likely if you have any suspension issue it will be the Rear Trailing Arm Bushing.
this project is a pain in the ass, leave a comment about any questions you may have
