With everything removed, the arms were scrubbed clean and all the parts, including the new tie rod and other components, were painted satin black. While the paint was drying, the new bushings were completely disassembled and coated in the supplied grease and reassembled before being installed. This will prevent any creaks or squeaks. A ball joint press was used to push the new bushings into the lower arms. A chunk of lead is used to keep the arm from collapsing during the process. If you don't have lead, find something that will fit in the area like a socket or a piece of wood.
