   i have just been down to my shed and checked out two old units, both of which had the bushes pressed in so they protruded equally each end.
press them in from whatever side you like, it makes no difference, just don't go in too far or it will wind up looking like the old one!
it is interesting to note that the casting of the bush  housing  protrudes further to the rear from the stub than the front, but even so, the bush must be pressed into it's housing evenly.
  best wishes martin spurrell.

Hi guys, the right hand lower stub axle "eye" bush is worn so I am replacing it with a new kit from the Bamforths.

As you can see in the attached photo, the old lower bush appears not to have been inserted far enough in so as to be equidistant from the stub axle sides. It is level with one edge but protruding on the other, whereas the upper bush is equally spaced. Is this correct or should it be further in like the upper bush ? I'm guessing in its current position the bush is affecting the Castor angle.

>From the manual, the new bush has to be pressed in from the rear so does that mean the old bush has to be pressed out to the rear too ? The manual description is a little confusing.
