Not exactly sure what you are asking, but if this is a MacPherson strut you need a spring compressor to disassemble it.

i can't picture any bushings...(i've done many struts on all kinds of cars)...are you sure it's not part of the strut and doesn't get removed? what exactly does the bushing you refer to...do?

pretty much, any strut will have a "plate" on the top, with bearing in the middle, that's where the shock absorber polished rod goes through. that is held in place by a nut. underneath the plate should be spring, sitting, on the opposite end, on a plate welded to the strut assembly. sometimes, you can have a polyurethane or rubber bumper sitting on shock absorber rod. that's, pretty much, all components. there might be a rubber ring between the lower spring and strut plate and one on the top end of spring. just additional shock absorbers.
the only piece that i can visualize as "bushing" with upper plate and spring removed is that rubber or polyurethane bumper that sits on the rod. kinda looks like a 2-3 inch wide donut. you just slide it off the rod. sometimes they may take some persuasion to do so. drop some oil on the rod and let it soak between the rod and bumper.
hope that hepls.

are you referring to a rubber bushing that is inside the round piece on the strut end? with metal pipe in it? that should come with replacement strut, assembled or in the bag. why do you need to press the old one out? if you have to, you have to soak it with Quickwrench and hammer it out, using large socket, it's pressed inside.

did you look at the link that i sent you? inside the monting bushing there is a metal sleeve, or pipe. it is nothing but a guide for mounting bolt and is not a part of the mount, but a part of the strut assembly and is supposed to be removed along with the strut. look at the link again, you can see it. you might be worrying for nothing.

ok...that little bushing centers the strut rod in the upper mount/bearing. they aren't very expensive, put new upper mounts or bearings (you want the bearing but on some applications, you buy the entire mount to get it). if you put it together without the bushing, the strut rod will rattle in the mount.
