I use a 1-13/16" deep socket ( measures 27 mm outside diameter ) and using a 32 mm deep socket to press into on my shop press. It takes only 5 minutes to press it out once you have the right 2 sockets and a buddy to help hold the shock. Auto shop with a press should be able to help you do it for $20. It is critical to use a 27mm - 27.8 mm cylindrical object to press out the stock rubber mounted bushing. The rubber puts up a good fight. My kit installs easy with a simple vice to push the 2 bearings in.
