Not too difficult to crack the control arm upon reinstalling (done that).

I'd suggest removing the control arm and taking it to a machine shop to do the dirty work, but removing and reinstalling the springs in these cars can be a pain in the hiney.
yeah, I just removed the springs the other day. Doesn't look like it'll be fun to get back in to place.

I'll check the local part stores for a press. The top one doesn't seem to be too hard to get out.
