Default Pressing out Diff bushings..1000psi and no movement..

So the last part of the rx7 lsd adventure is here. I dropped the diff off at a local performance shop to get them pressed out of the rx7 diff and the miata ones out of the miata housing and swap them in.

So they call me yesterday and say that they've put all they want (in terms of pressure) and they haven't budged(miata ones that is). So any one have any idea how to get them out, tips, tricks?

If not I'm just going to cut the housing and get them out and destroy the rx7 ones as they aren't coming out to easily either.

You're trying to get them out in order to re-use them? Man, see, I'd just buy new ones. As you've found, I'd think it'd be crazy difficult getting them out w/o destroying them.

I have two 1.6 diffs so I was going to chop one up and use the bushings, but it would prolly be a pita..
