UUC RTAB Installation Help

Iím having a devil of a time installing UUC urethane RTABs - even when using lots of Teflon-based bushing lube and a Schwaben RTAB tool. I was under the impression that a tool may not be required to install polyurethane RTABs, but Iím struggling even with it - as if the bushings just werenít met to go into that trailing arm.

Car is an Ď04 non-M E46 coupe and I purchased the bushings from Pelican: https://www.pelicanparts.com/More_In...PEL-RTABE36E46

Can anyone suggest a tip or trick for installing these?

My poly rtabs just went right in by hand. Maybe a little tapping with a dead blow to seat the inner tube for the bolt. Sure you got the correct ones?

That said, red the one review for that item. the reviewer had to "Grind down a lip" to get them started...
