removing spring plate bushings

After cutting off the larger pieces of the old bushings in 1/2 " pieces here is the best tool to use that I found. Works great.
Also with my new bushings I got a small tube of super glue. Is this necessary to put on?

Yes you need the super glue. What is that attachment?

Instead of replating them I am going to try a product out of Easwood company Golden Cad System
Going back together? I took a lot of photos digital camera's are great for that, also if I would need help there is this great message forum here.
I didn't really time myself on this project it was more enjoyable than going to work anyway.

Nice. I did the same thing when I installed Nextrix bushings on a pair of adjustable springplates (like yours) that I bought. Yes, use the super glue. As a mater of fact, I bought and used another tube, too. But, the glue only goes on the springplate, not in the T-bar tube. Just be clear.

Gettin' the old bushings off was fun, huh?

Feel free to post the reassembly as I'm in the (long) process of refurbishing a spare set of spring plates. I'm not sure where all the crush washers etc go and which bolts have washers at all. Your pics could be handy.

Just asking...what would happen if you don't use the glue..maybe only use a rubber-friendly grease...both on the ID and OD of the bushing???

Glue

Just a note on the use of thr superglue, it can damage the bushing if for some reason you have to remove the plate after the installation. The glue is more of an aid in the assembly and install process v.s. providing any holding power once the bushings are in the car. Think about it, all the weight and pressure on the bushings plus the slight but constant movement of the bushings as the car goes down the road. In other words once in the car the glue is going to eventually release anyways and with it the rubber around the post will tear with some hardened glue holding on the rubber and some on the metal. I know this well after completing the same job last spring on my 72. The only difference being my plates are not adjustable so it took 2 tries to get them set bang on by installing and removing the plate.

Good Luck!

I used a sawzall with a wood blade, easily took them off down to the spring plate without damaging them. I then took them to work & used a giant wire wheel to clean them up. Didn't use glue, instead I used the Weltmeister gorilla snot.

Is it common for people to not use the superglue included with Neatrix bushings when installing? What other greases would be suitable for these- anything not petroleum-based?

Don't bother with the glue and use a bit of silicone spray if you need a little help reinstalling them.

The eastwood stuff is mostly used on classic car's power brake boosters. That's probably what they developed it for... It is a 2 or 3 level painting process. I have seen pretty crappy results. But the plates are nicely hidden and you may have good luck getting them look close to stock. The other advantage is that there is no brake fluid potentially running over it making it all flow off like on those brake boosters.

I had a total nightmare getting the first set of bushings off of my spring plates. Then, I read the tech article here that recommends using a torch to heat the tube from the inside. I did this on the other side and the old bushings literally slid off! All I had to do after that was sand off the remaining residue. To give credit where credit is due, I believe the torch in tube was Chuck Moreland's idea.
