Hi all.
I am currently upgrading my lower arm suspension to powerflex bushes but I am having trouble removing the rear trailing arm toe in bolt in order to be able to remove the trailing arm. Am I missing something? Are there any tricks to removing it?

thanks!

Its probably seized in the hub bush very common. Sometimes you have to cut it out and replace the hub bush. One of those cam bolts can't remember if it is top or bottom is very expensive though £35 plus so you might want to keep trying. You might find previous posts on here on how others have released it.

If it’s anything like mine was it will be welded in to the Bush sleeve due to galvanic corrosion. No amount of soaking, breathing with a hammer or heating removed it. The bush sleeve ended up separating from the bush.
cut it both sides with reciprocating saw and replace bush and bolt

Where did you get your new bush and bolt from?
