anyone who has installed the GM aluminum cradle bushings?

how did you get them in? you are supposed to make sure then go in straight. I have a piece of threaded rod with nuts and washers. it keeps kicking sideways.

DO NOT DO IT THIS WAY. YOU HAVE TO INSTALL THE TOP BUSHING 1ST SO IT WILL GO IN ALL THE WAY. THE BOTTOM CAN STICK OUT BUT NOT THE TOP. Now i have to find out how to get the top bushing fully seated. did that did help. i ended up just using a 6" 3/4" bolt with 6 washers. like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_c...ature=emb_logo

Hmmm...I don't understand what you're saying here?
Do it like the video?
Don't do it like the video?
And what do you mean by "did that help".


So did you get it installed, and if so, what did you do?
I have a set coming, and would like to get a heads up on this.
Thanks!
