Anyone had any luck replacing lower control arm bushings on an XJ? Looks pretty simple... just wondering if anyone has any tricks or tips to the job? Any type of special press to get the old bushings out or new bushings in?

for the time and work involved, i'd rather just replace the whole arm. you'll find them all over the jeep forums for sale (cheap) or even freebies after someone lifts their tj or xj. even ebay can have them shipped for around $5. cheaper and faster than trying to replace that bushing.
