i got my bushings from oreilys for a few dollars each. first i tried what my neighbor said he did requiring a drill, various size bits, screwdriver, pliers and a BFH. took hours, literally but i got it out. the next one i wise'd up on and took the arm to the bench vice. it took me about 10 minutes to press out the remaining 3 bushings(i did both sides) and press the new ones in...

(edited)wait, are you talkin about the ball joint? either way, its replaceable too and probably just as old as the bushings so probably a good idea to add it to the list.
