I have an 06 kfx400 that needed its front lower shock bushings replaced. Everything was going smoothly until the bushing sleeve decided it wasn’t going to budge. I’m used to using heat and a whole lot of pb blaster but when it comes to heating up a shock I’m not to comfortable with what could and couldn’t happen. I wanna get these suckers out but I don’t wanna damage my shock.
Any suggestions?

You have the shocks off? If you cant knock it out or press it out with a chisel/bushing, you might consider drilling it out, if you can keep the drill centered, and re bushing the drilled hole. If you do decide to heat it, you might be able to wrap the shock with a wet towel or immerse it in water to keep the heat out of the rest of it. Good luck.
