    Has anyone tried to replace the bushings in an oem shackle? I’m wondering if they actually come out. I replaced mine and wanted to clean up the oem ones to hopefully get them to sell better. I’d like to powder coat them but can’t bake it with the rubber in there. I’ve tried the hammer method but the bushing doesn’t 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

    Torch em out and look for energy suspension replacements.
