    You can easily MAKE the Inner Arm "Spacer" tool to prevent crushing it from a piece of Pipe if needed.

    If the Upper Outer Pins have excessive wear, Yes replace them, otherwise you do not HAVE to.
    I and Studebaker call them "Pins and Bushings", only Chuck Collins calls them Trunions, all the same.

    I took two pieces of angle iron cut just right and tied together along with a press to put mine in. Worked great. No I have them marked and put away if I ever need them again.

    Check out
    http://www.studebaker-info.org/Tech/...shingtool.html

    The bushing tool is the way to go..


    Place the A-frames in a vice and destroy the old bushing rubber with a drill bit, punch the old shells out, clean the frames up and use the tool to install new bushings.

    I used a a frame bushing tool made by OTC that worked very well. OTC-7068. I've noticed cheaper versions offered by off shore companies.

    I used the tool in the link below with an air impact and it made the job much easier.

    A Hydraulic Press, a BFH, an Air Powered chisel hammer, a Torch etc. etc.

    The Upper "A" Arm spreader tool for doing the Upper, Outer Pins IS available at: http://studebakerpartsonline.com

    You can easily MAKE the Inner Arm "Spacer" tool to prevent crushing it from a piece of Pipe if needed.
    All three of these suggestions are what I used when I did my arms.
