I bought a 1/2" bushing tool off of eBay from mtnbiker4life (http://www.ebay.com/itm/290658543751) for $25. Here's how I used it to replace some DU bushings in a Fox RP23 shock.

The tool comes apart into three pieces.

Image

A busing guide (left), the main body which has a hole for the busing guide pin on one side and a bushing counter bore on the other side (center), and an end cap (right).

Image

Close up of the bushing counter bore side (for bushing removal).

Image

Close up of the guide pin hole (for bushing installation).

Image


For the removal, we'll be using the guide pin and the bushing counter bore side of the main body.

Image

Insert he guide pin through the installed bushing.

Image

Image

Insert the counter bore side onto the guide pin.

Image

Place the assembly into a vice and gently increase pressure until the bushing is completely pushed free of the shock.

Image

For installation, we'll use the same busing guide and the side of the main body with the guide pin hole.

Image

Insert the new bushing onto the guide pin.

Image

Place the main body on the opposite side. NOTE: In my haste I forgot to put the end cap on the bushing counter bore side. It didn't damage the body. But, the end cap is intended to prevent damage to the counter bore side while driving in the bushings. I won't forget to do this again in the future.

Image

Gently increase pressure with the vice until the bushing is fully inserted into the shock.

Image

All done.
