I've never had much luck with those tin bolt retainers, especially in tight quarters like this is, but I'll give it try. This sure is a cluster thanks to some brilliant design work....or is it the lack of?

Got the passenger side bushing changed out. Tried moving the tin bolt retainer up with some success but not enough to get the nut off. Tried loosening the LCA bolt but seemed like it would have taken a lot to get the nut off. The 'bigger hammer' method is what finally worked for me. One thing I noticed once the old bushing was out (it wasn't in too bad of shape actually) was that the distance from the bottom of the bar hole to the bottom of the bushing was about a quarter inch more on the new poly Moog bushing. That struck me as a good thing.
I do have one more question. Will it be easier to change out the drivers side bushing?
