Exclamation Honda Trailing Arm Bushing Removal Tool Rental

Hello everyone,

So I plan on replacing my trailing arm bushings soon and was looking for a rental. I checked the other threads and some of the links the tools were not available anymore and I finally came up upon this one: Honda Specialty Tool Rental

you pay I think a total of $159 and when the tool is returned you get back $119 so you pay around $39 for the 2 week rental.

I was wondering if anyone has rented or heard of this site?

Also how can I know I can trust this rental site? and if not how can I protect my payment (payment is through credit card on the website)

Any input would be great appreciated or if anyone on here has a tool for rental

I got the tool from @TurboLS via @ILxIntegra , and it worked pretty well. You need to be very careful to maintain alignment when removing the old bushing and pressing in the new one, as the tool will fubar your RTA if it gets cocked in the bore.

Ramzi is good people. If it says the tool is available to rent on the website (which it does as of this writing), then you can rent it. Go through the proper steps to rent it, and it will be sent to you. Keep in mind what Dave said about as well.

Thank you for your reply and this would be done just by going slow and steady with the tool correct?

I have heard of people spraying penetrating oil before removing the bushings, would this help?

Penetrating oil, twice a day, for 7 days before you try to R&R the RTA bushings, yes.

Going slow is good, but you also need to have someone watching the tool to verify alignment while you're whaling on the ratchet.

If all else fails, spent $80 on the Harbor Freight 12T shop press and use the driver set that comes with the tool to do it that way. In my thread is a picture of the minor level of tweak one of mine acquired while trying to do it on the car. It still works fine and aligned without an issue, but it's a point of annoyance for me.

Just a heads up I called this morning and he closed his renting service this morning because of slow business and I wasn't able to rent the tool

Anybody else renting the tool?

This tool is currently rented out to someone else. I'm not sure who you called and apologize if I somehow missed a voicemail or a call.

The tool is on its way back to me. I can update you when it returns if you're still interested in renting it.

Where are you located, roughly?
