Default Oem shackles
Has anyone tried to replace the bushings in an oem shackle? Iím wondering if they actually come out. I replaced mine and wanted to clean up the oem ones to hopefully get them to sell better. Iíd like to powder coat them but canít bake it with the rubber in there. Iíve tried the hammer method but the bushing doesnít seem to budge. Thinking they need to be pressed out if they even come out?

I don't think they are designed to come out. Pretty sure pressing will destroy them.
I have removed the oem bushing (not Raptor) by melting/burning with a torch
