As per the instructions. A block of wood and mallet should seat them in.
Mine were VERY tight, but I figure the tighter the better.

Also I remember reading somewhere if you have trouble getting them started then file the edges as to help it get started.

IMO I would not grind down the whole bush as it will likely make it too loose.

Yep, I agree, don't cut down the bushings. They need to be a tight press fit. Make sure that there are no burs on the frame tube. We were able to seat ours with a block of wood and a BFH.

I just did mine the other day. Like everyone says, file down the burs, and maybe the corners on the bushing a little bit. They will fit though.

OP, I just did this a couple weeks ago and like others have said, check for burs in the frame. Also, I know the directions say you may need to "tap" the bushings in, but there's no tapping about it. Get a 2x4 and BFH and beat the bushing into the frame. Same thing with the bar when you get the bushings installed. It'll take some force to get the bar through the bushings. Don't be shy. Just have everything lined up and apply some force to it.

Just did this last night. Had to get the die grinder out to remove a couple of welds from inside the frame tube. Then had to do a little relieving of the bushings. I used a 5lb hammer and there was no way they were going in without some massaging. My bigger problem was the Body Armor front bumper covering the tube. What a PITA.

Marco,

That was quick! A little softer on road but well worth it on the trail.

I don't think plastics will shrink significantly..... Metals will.

I used a wood maul with a large flat side, and a piece of oak larger then the bushing, it takes a few good wacks.
