OTTP Front Leading Control Arm Bushing Install

After doing some research and taking others advice, my install took about an hour for both sides.

1. I cut off the lip of the bushing and pry it off.
2. I used a Harbor Freight ball joint press to push it out.
3. I quickly cleaned the goo out of the opened control arm with brake clean.
4. I hand started the Delrin bushings and then pressed them in.
5. The shaft was pressed in next.
The shaft is tight. I researched and found they are self lubricating and didn’t lube before I pressed it in - I wish I would have.
Lastly is a pic of the tools I used - It really took less than an hour.

What grease would you recommend? Need to do these after I get the arms coated. How hard were trailing bushings? Believe I have the same ones.

Figured the freeze method to install the lead and a press to install the trail. On my to do list for sure.
