How do you change the front bushings on a 1999 venture van lower control arm are special tools required for this model to be pressed in or can you do it yourself Thanks?

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.
