All i did was poke alot of holes around the silver ring, and then pushed the the rubber bushing out.
Then i sawed off the silver inner rings and used alot of the lube they gave me to put in the bushings.
Took me about a total of 2 days.
The big one took 4-6 hours to figure how to get it out.
Then the next day took like 2-4 hours cause the smaller rubber bushings is all the way around.
Took foreva to get the small bushing out.
Once you get the rubber bushings out and then you start sawin' in a straight line and then you heat up the inner sleeve, and use a flat head wit a hammer and hit it out and pry it loose.

They do have a part number for the manual trans guys. It is SPF1348K. Just a few thoughts for the 5spd guys. Our stock bushing is solid compared to the autos but you still benefit greatly. There are 2 long oval holes in the manual bushing vs the auto's spiral pattern. Mount them front and back not top and bottom. I don't even have the front torque rod and the engine movement is greatly reduced. Well worth it and only about $30 for the manual guys.

A. It should be about $50-$60 i think.
B. You really don't need a press to install it.
C. I just have a picture of it installed.

IMO it's not really hard to install.
All you need is the wrenches to remove the dogbone bushin' mount, hammer, flat head, and a saw.

1. When you have the dogbone bushin' mount removed from the car.
2. Take the saw and saw the silver metal band in the big part of the dogbone bushin' mount, only saw alittle bit through the silver metal band, then take the flat head and place it between the silver metal bend and the black part of the bushin' mount, and hammer away around the circumference of the bushin' mount, pry the silver metal band while goin' around the circumference.
3. For the small part, just use the flat head and cut through rubber bushin'.
4. Then again do the same thing you did wit the big part of the bushin' mount. Just saw the silver metal band just enough. Then just use the technique of the pryin' and hammerin' away like i mentioned for the big bushin' part.
5. Take out your dogbone bushin' from SuperPro.
6. Lube up the bushin' and just play around wit the bushin' til the lips of it go in the hole, and then just press the bushin' in.

That's about it.
Not hard at all.
