removing/replacing front lower control arm bushing?

i was wondering how hard is it to remove the front lower control arm bushing? do you have to use a one ton press to press the old one out and the new one in? kinda like what you have to do for the track bar? i've got one that i think is bad because it wont hold the control arm in the middle of the bolt like it should.

yea, the way its looking it might be better to go ahead and replace them. from what i've heard it's a PITA to change the bushing in the track bar and i assume it's probably the same for the control arms.
