How hard is this procedure? it appears this needs to be done on my car but I can’t find a procedure for this gen. Apologies if this is redundant but I couldn’t find anything.

I did it by unattaching the driveshaft from the diff and lowering the diff down in a jack. You can keep the axles attached.

I then made my own press with some all thread and some square stock bar cut in half to press them out. They are hard to press in and out.

I believe @Power Wagon 3.6 is asking about replacing the bushings at the back of the differential, in the sub-frame crossmember (based on this thread), rather than the bushing in the differential's front support (as in the video linked in post #2).

that video will get him enough information as there are not many that deal with the rear bushings... and the principles applied will be used to R&R the rear bushings...

My above post was for the diff bushings located in the rear subframe. I left the other two bushings as they seemed fine
