Asuming you know how to remove control arm from vehicle, you need a press to push the bushings out. Rust is all most always a big problem. So a torch comes in handy. By the time you get the bushings out the holes are no longer original size. Concerns that the new bushing will stay in place become your next issue. If I was you: Find someone who sells Dorman products. They sell the complete lower control arm for about the same price as just the ball joint would cost you. 70.00 to 90.00 range. No rust to contend with. All 3 pivot points are then new.

Replace control arm bushings Pontiac sunfire?

Normally on most vehicles in need of lower "A-Arm" bushings the lower arm must be completely removed as the bushings are pressed on. Once the arm is removed you can easily press out the old and the new in. If you don't have a press most machine shops will usually do it for $10.00-$20.00. By the most part they are not that difficult. Use a manual and adequate jack stands. Good luck!
