    Bought this tool to replace the control arm bushings that are pressed in the ears of the rear axle. Its part #0599.

    It works like a charm! I was able to press the old bushings out and the new ones in without a hitch. Highly recommended!

    They don't appear to have updated their website since 2008.

    Its listed for $89 on their site and that's what they charged me last week. Well worth it. Made quick work of it

    The only problem I have found with this tool is everyone wants to borrow it because it works so well!

    I have the original Kent Moore control arm bushing tools and spacers for the rear control arms and the front lowers. On the front uppers, a company called "Astro" makes a nice upper control arm remover/ installer

    Does anyone know if HR is still in business? I called several times today and left a message on FB but no one has responded. I'm looking for a this type of tool to keep in the box for other projects.

    I have had one of these for years. It works great on front lower bushings as well as rears.
    Well worth the price since it saves on having to find a machine or front end shop to press your bushings.

    I've had one for awhile now, and I agree it's a very useful tool. Makes the job easy!

    Do you have part numbers for the rear control arm bushing tools n spacers?

    I've been looking and I can't tell exactly what I need from the ebay listings.
