    So finally getting some work going on the 5th. New tires, trans mount, have my rear brake parts and front sway bar bushings. Just removed the bar today to start. Figured I ask if anyone has any tips or tricks to make putting on the poly bushings easier. Figure it would make it easier to clean the bar of rust and scale and such first. Wasn't sure if there was anything else I should do to make my life easier for this job.

    Bushing grease, grip strength, patience. You’ll be solid.
    Some people boil bushings before install so they expand a little and have a little extra give until they cool back down.

    Good to know that it's just a "patients and perseverance" type of job
