NEW PRODUCT!

If you are preparing to rebuild the rear shocks in a Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud I, II or III; Bentley S1, S2 or S3 or any coachbuilt derivatives, you will be confronted with the removal and replacement of the four Silentbloc rubber bushings (UR3673). Even if you manage to remove the bushing on each control arm with large shop press, the problem remains on how to remove the ones attached to the rear axle.

This clever tool will remove both bushings quickly and efficiently in combination with a 1/2 inch drive ratchet and 5/8 socket and 11/16 wrench. If you do this for a living, this tool will pay for itself the first time you use it. Click here for details.
