I found that the original rack bushes are easy to remove with only a cold chisel and a hammer. The outer steel sleeve extends past the edge of the rack. Put a good chisel on it and whack it good towards the inside. It will fold up. Once it is folded in sufficiently to make a good landing for your chisel drive it through the rack. Pops right out. Two minutes.
