https://www.sptool.com/product/68100-hondaacura-front-lower-compliance-bushing-rr-tool/
https://www.tooltopia.com/schley-68100.aspx

Purchased this tool because my 9circle kit only covered the 74mm bushings and their 65mm version was OOS everywhere.

I used the Schley tool on a 2003 Pilot with the 65mm bushings.

The best part about the Schley tool is that the pressing cup has a groove to hold the new bushing. This seems to help keep the bushing centered while pressing in the new one.

The intent of the Schley tool is to allow you to replace the compliance bushing without removing the control arm. You will need to remove the axle nut and push in the axle before pulling out the arm though. Otherwise you WILL separate the cv axle’s inner joint.

The cost is a bit steep but a new control arm from Honda is over $300/side and the compliance bushings is only $30. Usually the rest of the arm is still fine (it is just the compliance bushing that wears out) so this tool is a great investment if you own or service any Honda products with the 65mm or 74mm bushings.

Schley makes some good quality stuff. Had their Crankshaft pulley holder that I bought for my 98 Sienna timing belt job.

I'm sure you'll get plenty of use from that tool.

In the picture it's looks like you have the control arm pretty much removed except for at the ball joint. Why not spend 2 minutes to remove it from there too?

Two minutes, eh? TBF Crit does live in the mythical land where rust does not exist.

Looks a lot better than the combination ball joint press, bearing press, and old hollowed out compliance bushing I use. Gets the job done...certainly isn't the easiest way to do it though. That and Honda puts a bevel on the edge of the bushings, so you have to be careful and not slip off, the groove in an official tool would be a godsend for that.

Eh, the less you remove, the better. There is always a risk to separating the ball joint. Sometimes the boots rip. If you use the ball joint air hammer nuts, you will sometimes rip the threads off of the stud.

Yeah, the groove in the cup is truly a godsend.

Just did a pair today on a relative’s 03 Accord with the 74mm bushings. No issues at all with the dual 65/74mm design.

Honda dealer want a lot to do bushings. cousins 2012 pilot had leaking bushings. they wanted $900 to do both . parts were $250 or so. So i look it up to see why its so much and it looked like a easy job . then i saw that they would be covered under a extended honda warranty for these . service guy did not bother to tell him it was still under warranty.

took it in and was out in less than 2 hours.

Nice. It’d be very easy to get your money’s worth and then some out of this tool.

I thought about doing something like this when I did the wife’s control arms last year. Sadly, one of the bushes has 2 bolt holes that need to be oriented 90 degrees with the ground.

Since I didn’t have a jig I decided to pass, but this would have been so much cheaper in the long run as well as in the future since it eats bushings. Thankfully the most failure prone bushing is easy to replace unlike the oddball.
