Putting the wipers together and I ordered some new bushings for the pivots. They had some cracked plastic bushing on them when I cleaned it up, so assumed that's what I needed. Question is, are they pressed in, do I put it on the pivot firs then the shaft. Pretty tight fit. 1973 Roadrunner.

Put them in the arm first, the pivot ball expands them a smidge to keep them in place.

Great. Also with a dab of white lithium grease from what I have been seeing.

I just used WD40 for assembly and will evaporate. Nylon is self-lubricating, so white lithium isn't really needed.
