    are they pressed in and how hard is it to get to the top of the bolt with a wrench . it looks like it can be secured from the inside ? or the fender side ? unfortunately the budget only calls for a non urethane replacement . thanks for the quick responce

    the top of the bolt is held in with a U clip type thing...you dont even have to hold it with a wrench...i bet the difference in price between polys and rubber is not so much
