A press is the easiest, but if not that, a long grade 8 bolt,nut, and a bunch of big thick washers can do the install. Torch works well for removal.

Insert bolt with a couple of washers through bushing and arm. Add more washers and nut. Start cranking on the nut/bolt. Watch you don't collapse the arm.

Just use a big C-clamp with a good handle for gripping and turning. Use a couple of pieces of wood for a flat surface. Might take some grunt, but it'll work.
