There was a house fire right next to my office this morning. A woman died. I was woken up at 0645 by my office assistant, hysterical because she could hear them screaming. Fuck.

My guess would be that Chris took some time off because he has read the dialogue on this page 1,345 times and decided to spend some of his free time doing something besides beating a horse to death.

It didn't set OBDII readiness. I did clear the codes like 10 minutes before so that might be why.

Here's how my whole weekend was ruined!
Took off half the day Friday to start replacing the bushings in the wife's Kia that's clankety clanking. Read up on it, should just drop the trailing arm and keep it all connected to the car... push it out. I figured this would be difficult, but didn't want to disconnect the brake lines and have to bleed them.

Start on it. No bueno. Decide to remove the whole trailing arm/rear suspension from the car. Which means I need to disconnect the parking brake. Which means I have to completely disassemble the rear drum brakes.
OH FUN!
It's out, then I learn that I've pretty much got to destroy this thing to remove it. Sledgehammer, chisels, air chisels. Lots of cursing, lots of HEAT. It's finally out. I'm going to take it to a shop tomorrow to get them to press it back in. And to swap the other one. I'm done with dealing with that shit.

Oh I just realized that I didn't update this.
Monday I took the whole axle torsion assembly to my local go to shop down the road. Drop it off at 8am and say I need one removed, and both pressed in. They call at lunch and say they can't get it in their machine.
This is a pretty well equipped shop, so if they can't do it then I'm starting to get worried about the money pit I just dove into.

Take it to a local trailer and truck accessory shop by my work since I figure they press in bearings and all sorts of axle shit for big trucks. No bueno. They say the dealer should be able to handle that, or Lafayette Spring should be able to (another local shop that does big rig 18 wheeler suspensions and shit).

Take it to the spring shop, no go. They can't do anything that small.

Take it to the fucking dealer. Fucking Kia. Girl at the service counter is all "SURE! WE CAN GET THAT IN FOR YOU! It'S A KiA ParT? Wait, Wat is tHaT?"
Yeah, What is that. When she asked it told me that they don't get people coming in asking for this shit. I ask for her to get a tech to talk to. She comes back with the tech, immediately his face cringes and I say
"The look on your face tells me everything I need to know"
"Torsion Axle bushing?"
"yup"
"mannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. I hate to say it but we usually just replace the whole damn thing when those go out"
"That's what the internet tells me."

So I'm pissed at that point because this whole rear is $670 from the dealer, but I can get it for about $500-550 online elsewhere. I message the shop that did the tune on my Z06 and ask if he can help. Tells me to bring it by after work. I go by, he looks at it, we fucking handstand the motherfucker up in the air to get our angle right and then he gets it in with his 20ton hydraulic press. No idea why no other shop is capable of getting 2 burly ass men to just hold it up while another hits a button and keeps it lined up. You're all failures in my book. The airboat shop gave zero fucks and got it in easy.
I forgot to mention that the ID of the arm is Ø2.750, and the OD of the bushing was Ø2.770. Fucking .020 thou over. That's a hell of an interference fit. But that press got it installed in under 10 seconds. Tipped my buddy $20 and worked from about 7-11pm at night to get it installed. Still need to bleed the brakes more but it's done.

I deal with bearing and races with japanese tolerances like that, i emery the surface and lube it up before beating it together with a brass hammer but a bearing warmer/heater is the right answer. Get one part red hot, and :doit:

I debated on this but read that it's possible to overdo it and mess up the alignment due to warping. I shoved the bushing in the freezer overnight, but to get it to shrink any significant amount would likely require me to have to get to sub zero temps.

With my work I'm used to speccing out tolerancing for shafts here and there ( https://www.amesweb.info/FitTolerance/F ... GDFhxaIiOD ) and +.020" just seemed crazy to me. When I pulled that dimension from the bushing my heart just sank because I figured only a manufacturing plant would be capable of pressing that shit in part after part after part. But I was apparently wrong.

Or you could airboat some custom clamp/vice with flame throwers and digi-micrometer control mechanism and just do it in your garage but I understand if it is "too hard" due to humidity or whatever.
