    Never did the one piece, but my guess would be to press them in with a vice. Try soaking them in HOT soapy water first and put them in the vice and get them started most of the way. Then put a larger socket (18mm - 20 mm or so) as a receiver and a smaller socket (10mm?) as a push plate and press them enough to seat them. Dry them well and lube as directed in the package. Make sure the interior faces of the end link are cleaned and free of debris before pressing in the new bushes. Use some scotch brite pads to clean them.
