  • shackle bushes

    Hi everyone, I have changed the rear spring bushes on a few different studes, but the latest, my son's '63 Avanti is looking like a real challenge. Is there an easy way to get the bushes out of the chassis, or do I have to take the body off. Thanks, Dave Pink. Australia.[?]

    It can be done with the body on the car but its a PITA!
    As you can see there isnt' alot of room on the body panel side and fiberglass, well let just say go slow and have an extra dose of patience. I lost my A%$ when I bid the last bushing job on an AvantiII

      Jon Myer (Myer's Studebakers) says he rarely changes the upper rear bushings as they aren't usually bad like the others. He says the Avanti upper rears are almost impossible to get out without lifting the body. I have not tried an Avanti, but I had to drop the gas tank to change the upper rears on my '64 Daytona convertible.

        The more that I look at them, the better they look. I trimmed the split edges off the rubber, and suddenly they are acceptable to me. Thank for your help.
