Where to find Miller Tool 7932 7603 7604

I'm looking for the Miller Tool combo kit that works to remove the UCA on the axle side. There is one on eBay but it's around $360, but that price doesn't seem right for a bolt and a couple pieces of metal. If there are other tools (aside from a ball joint press) for this job I'd be interested. Or if anyone here wants to sell me theirs

To remove axle side bushings, use a hole saw to remove the most of the rubber, or use a torch and burn it out. Chisel out the shell. You can use a hack saw blade to slit the shell if necessary.

Press in the new bushing with a ball joint press. On the passenger side you might need a shim to stop the open side of mount from flexing.

Hey thanks - this tool is for removing the entire arm from the axle, not just the bushing. I don't know if I'll ever get into bushing replacement, as I've always just purchased the whole arm.

Right, I forgot tbe axel side bushing is separate. I don't really want to go with the brute force method (hole saw + torch) but if I can do it without losing an eyeball then maybe I'm game.

The control arm assemblies unbolt and require no tools other than maybe a pry bar or hammer to remove.

Front axle UCA bushings are a bit of a pain due to space limitations, but it's all doable with basic garage tools. Do what CJ7-Tim suggested: hole saw or torch to remove the rubber bushing, and chisel out the outer shell. I used a hole saw with a couple extra- large heavy duty washers and all- thread + nuts to press in the new bushings, happened to have a matching size for the bushing

I honestly see no point in paying 300-400$ for a tool kit that you most likely use no more than a couple of times in your entire life. At that point it makes more sense to take the Jeep to a shop and have them replace the bushings if you don't want to try it yourself.

I made the tool out of exhaust pipe and steel scrap I had in my garage. The only thing I bought was a piece of 3/8" Grade 8 threaded rod since some people reported breaking regular threaded rod.

Not sure why you would need any sort of special tool besides a ratchet, some sockets, and a torx bit. Just took mine out a couple of months ago.

Upper control arm replacement requires the tools you mentioned, but you're not replacing the bushings with them
