controll arm bushings

After pressing out the old bushings do the new ones need to be pressed in or will they be sinched in while being tightened up?

Suppose it depends on the application but all the ones I've done were pressed in. What bushings on which part?

I did the front of my car last year. After I pressed out the old bushing I had a heck of a time getting the new bushing in. It took a good 45 minutes to press the first one in and I ran out of light and gave up. On the advice of someone that has done several cars I put the remaining bushings in the freezer.
The next day I pressed the frozen bushing in without any problems. I didn't even need my press I just used a small c-clamp.
Hope this helps

Bushings

Thanks for info. I will be placing the bushings for the upper and lower A-arms(control arms) in the freezer asap. Great idea.

Freezer method is great for the new ones.

Removing the old ones can be as easy. Take your drill with a drill bit and drill holes all around the bushing. It releaves the pressure, and they will just pop out pretty easy.
