Powder coating a-arms? Bushings?

Recommended Posts

Been trying to powder coat the a arms off of my 85 Lt230S suzuki and im not sure about the bushings/bearings(?) inside the arms. I plan on masking off the inside on the arms anyways but do these need to be removed? Can they take *400f necessary to powder coating? Are they all metal or what?

I tried removing them but for the life of me can't

Those bushings/bearing are probably press fit from the factory. The replacement parts fiche shows a replaceable bushing/bearing, so you can get them out but you'll need a press.Take a look @ the "suspension arm". https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/oem-schematic/2

Thank you, I'm definitely not going to be taking them anywhere to get them pressed out.

Anyone know if they can just take the heat or not?
