Purchased this tool because my 9circle kit only covered the 74mm bushings and their 65mm version was OOS everywhere.
I used the Schley tool on a 2003 Pilot with the 65mm bushings.
The best part about the Schley tool is that the pressing cup has a groove to hold the new bushing. This seems to help keep the bushing centered while pressing in the new one.
The intent of the Schley tool is to allow you to replace the compliance bushing without removing the control arm. You will need to remove the axle nut and push in the axle before pulling out the arm though. Otherwise you WILL separate the cv axle's inner joint.
The cost is a bit steep but a new control arm from Honda is over $300/side and the compliance bushings is only $30. Usually the rest of the arm is still fine (it is just the compliance bushing that wears out) so this tool is a great investment if you own or service any Honda products with the 65mm or 74mm bushings.
