Currie Trac Bar

I'm going to be installing a Savvy 4" lift so I thought I would get some of the parts powder coated. I got Currie front and rear trac bars to install also. So now to my dilemma that I'm having. I figured I would get my trac bars powder coated also while I was getting things done. I tried removing the snap ring that holds the bushing in. I am unable to replace the snap ring because the bushing expanded now there isn't enough room. How can I get the bushings out so I can powder coat them and how do I replace them so I can reinstall the ring?

You need to compress the bushing to reinstall the snap ring. Rokmen makes a nice Johnny joint assembly/disassembly tool or you can improvise using some sockets and a vice.

Buy nice, not twice.
