To get the bushing in I used my hydraulic press but you can do this easly with a C-clamp. Just use the c-clamp to press them in.

I was able to push them in by hand, just got to be steady cause one side wants to go in before the other.

Put a little dish soap on the bushing, then press it in. No problemo.

Lube it and squeeze it in with a vise.

had a simillar issue with my Bilstein shocks.

I resolved with a rubber mallet. It just took a couple of hits to get the bushings into place.
