Has anyone got a ford focus rear suspension bush remover i could borrow/buy, as per the link below. Seems like a lot to spend on a single use tool, so thought I'd check here first.

I've got a whole host of mechanical/hydraulic presses Andy, but you are rather a long ways up country -- will be in Royal Leamington Spa week-end after next at Model Engineering Expo if any help.

I've got access to a press, but that would require removing the whole arm, hub, brakes etc, which is a much longer job.
A two leg puller could also be used if i had a bespoke plate, which is what this tool does, but would take time to make

My hydraulic press is portable --- Sykes Pickavant 15000 series -- But may need to turn a tube to right diameter for the pushing side. 

 

E-bay 123287146326  is a picture of the kit I have plus loads more arms & ram extensions.

The base plate is two parts so can be adjusted to suit hole size required, side arms can be up to 12" long.
