What is not so nice is the inner bit (right where the new ones want to sit) seems nice and firmly attached to the trailing arm in a surface rust kind of way.
Recommendations on best way to get this out so it can be cleaned up and the new complete bushing dropped in? Cutting? A big hammer and a drift? Find someone with a torch to heat and loosen things a bit? Soak in WD40?
Or do I just abandon the rubber bushings I have and get some poly ones that I can separate and fit into the existing leftover bits?
wd40 is a wonderful product but it works better with a bit of heat. My suggestion and how I did it was to heat the area and then spray with wd40, repeated a few times and then get a air chisel and collapse in one side of the shell
