Very helpful. Going to change with the Whiteline bushings to the lower control arm in my 12' GTI. Wonder if the three claw puller is a must coz it appears that the C clamp alone would be sufficed?
I'm going to replace the front busing as well. Any advice on how to replace this piece would be appreciated.

Changed the OEM w a Whiteline bushings. Serious NVH was noted and also squeak noise from the LCA even when parking.

How did the c-clamp alone work out? Seems like it would be fine if you can use it in a way that allows for clearance so the bushing can come out.

Did you grease up the bushing sufficiently? Poly bushings tend to be really picky about that, which is why I went with the rubber bushings.
