how can i change these bushings without arm wrestling them ?
Seriously? Ok, raise body / fame so suspension is unloaded. If you want to do it with the wheels off (probably better) have axle on stand first before unloading the suspension. Remove, rebush and replace bars, probably one at a time. Use antisieze everywhere. Nothing should move much and unless there's a ton of bind or preload anywhere for some reason it should go together easily enough.
The fun starts when you find the bushings have frozen onto the bolts so won't come out. Thanks Bonneville!!
The bushings really have no transverse rotational freedom. The bars can't twist and the bushings can't either. The bars and bushings are strained when the rear hits a bump on one side.
A rod end on one end would be advised.
