You mean the main bushes either side of the car, or the differential bush?

I used a 24" breaker bar to remove the large nut #6, I think its difficult to replace the main bearing without removing the whole rear beam? and or haven't the correct tools

Even when you get that nut off they are a real bitch to get out without the proper bush tool. If the nut is really stuck then you could also back out the stud and strand yourself. IMO get ML to do it like I did. They charged me 2.5 hours.
