You wont, trust me i have looked. You will have to order one from the UK if you don't want the SPX Miller Bolt.

I plan on either buying the SPX Miller Bolt or order one from the UK and the bushing bolt flange nut and use these cheap adapters. And Viola! you have a cheap version of the whole bushing tool.

The only thing that long in Home Depot was 'all thread'. And that thread is soft, compared to the cased hardened special tool. I bought some and tried it. Three different pieces all snapped in half. I guess it is worth a try. It all depends how tightly pressed in and rusted the old bushings are.

Good for you. That was the 7932. Did you also get the long nut?

The long bolt 7604, additonally comes with a bearing, that aids in the 'turning motion', so you don't have the head of the bolt 'grinding' against the edge of the remover tool.

Here is what I spent: 7932 = $60, 7603 = $14, 7604 = $43, shipping included. A little expensive, but it should make the project easier. I could always sell it.

Exactly. Once you use it, put it up on ebay, or on the classifieds, here.

Make sure you go with Mopar replacement bushings. I cheaped out and put the Crowns in and they lasted 2 months. I just redid them all with Mopar bushings.

I also used Mopar:

5208 8214 @ $28.53. Check this link then type in the part number in the 'part number search' box.

http://allmoparparts.com/repair-part...es/front-axle/

Had Crowns go bad on me. (And yes, they were torqued with vehicle on the ground.)

The bushings were installed without incident with the exception of bending my new Miller long bolt.
