While you're under there, I would take a look at those inner DL bushings anyway.

We used to check that we remembered all the kids when we heard noises in the back. They can gon2-3 days easily on leftover goldfish and water.

I got all the parts yesterday and started the replacement this morning. It took about 2 hours and 10 minutes from start to "end". The "end" means that all 5 bolts need to be turned to 60 degree, 90 degree and 120 degree. I just torqued them to 65 Nm, and 105 Nm this morning then I had to go to work. I will continue tomorrow morning, Columbus Day to finish it up.

I followed other member in this forum to drill the rubber first before using the tool. I used a 1/4 inch drill bit. Old bushing came out very easy and more time was spent to push the new one in. Tool needed to be straight to push the new bushing in. I also spent a lot of time to remove the old bushing from the chassis pin. I kept pushing the link down to try to get the old bushing out of the chassis pin. I forgot how I did that 8 years ago. So I finally disconnected the shock from the spring and the whole link dropped down effortless ! I should have done that in the first place then it would cut down the total time to less than 2 hours.

I also checked the DL, all were good.
