Re: Is it easy to replace the bushes?
If they need replacing, the old bush will just fall out, but you still need to remove the steel outer sleeve. You can cut a slot in that, which will loosen it and that too will fall out.
The "fly in the ointment" though is that usually the bolt that goes through the bush is fitted the wrong way round at the factory. So the nut is on the inside and the bolt won't come out because the brake disc is in the way! (fit it the other way round when putting it back together).
I think the new bush may need a proper puller (or a home made widget) to get it in parallel.
