Removing Body Mount over Rear Axle
I've searched the forum but I'm unable to find the answer, hopefully one of you does.
I'm in the midst of replacing all the bushings (body and suspension), using the Energy Suspension bits (black ones). The bolts are coming out OK with the exception of #6 over the rear axle (some refer to this as #5 if the radiator support is not included in the count). It appears that a rubber plug next to the coil spring needs to be removed to gain access to the bolt. After an hour of frustration, I gave up trying to remove the plug.
Can anyone shed some light on how to access the body mount bushing over the rear axle? Any feedback is appreciated.
Thank you and take care,
