Has anyone tackled this job? I've ordered the bushings. Gotten one removed, but I cannot for anything figure out how you get the new ones in. The thing is made bigger than the hole. Not to mention how cheaply these things are made. I am wondering if it would be less trouble to just have some solid bushings made and take the sacrifice of a little cabin rattle.

This is one hell of a crap ass design from LR. the aluminum surrounding the mount is paper thin, as well they didnt even fill the mount with rubber. I mean really.

It is making this horrible clicking sound. After putting it on jack stands and going from forward to reverse, i can see the bushings moving enough to hit the metal washer as well as going back and hitting the frame. It's really annoying.
