Trust me. The hole in the middle of the upper bushing is so large that I
think I would have little trouble getting the link off the stud. I said
these things clunk on bumps, and I meant it.
Been there, done that. The rubber that was used was rather shoddy and
tends to deteriorate over the 40 odd years that these things have been in
(Hey! Just kidding. 40 year old rubber is expected to fail. The pity is
that the shocks themselves often last quite a bit longer)
