Well fellas, thanks for the responses. I was rebuilding the springs so I disassembled them and worked on just the main leaf. I used the handle from my bushing driver set to press out the bolt sleeve, then a large socket to press out the rubber bushing, and hacksawed through the outside sleeve down to the spring and cold chiseled the remainder out. TA DA!
Antiseized the spring eye and first 1/2" of the new bushing assembly and pressed it in using a tapered roller bearing cone that fit the new shell beautifully. I save cups and cones (stripped of rollers and cage) to press on new bearings and whatever.
I reassembled both springs and got one back in the car today. It's a good thing I'm not working "flat rate", I'd have lost my ***!
Man, you sound like me lol. For years, I didn't throw away anything and found uses for the parts and pieces to be used as tools.....shade tree mechanic under roof to the max! Just be careful with using bearing parts. They are hardened and can shatter without warning. Ask me how I know that!!
