Hello everyone.

Does anyone have some tips on installing rear upper control arm bushings?

They are the rubber kind with a shoulder, that go on the rear of the subframe and on the top of the wheel hub.

Car is a 2004 XC90 D5 AWD

PN: 30748890

The problem I'm having is that the shoulder of the bushing catches the edge of the hole for the bushing, and when I press them in it just rips the rubber off of the inner metal sleeve.

I'm using one of those universal bearing push and pull kits and the subframe is off the car.

Tried using lubricant but it didn't help.

Does anyone have some tips?
