The rod threads have loctite on them. I had to double nut the threads and use a flat wrench and an allen wrench together to get it unscrewed. Have faith, you can do it!

When I installed the 3kgt inserts into my Buddy Club housings the insert was only supported by one of the two sliders because the Bilstein rod was longer. I had to drive in an extra bushing so the shock was supported at full droop.

Here's a source for new slider bushings;

These guys are in Canada and the US. If you can't source through them you may find another source by searching for slide/slider bushings or bearings.
