Looks like I'll be making a tool then. These are bargains:
I tried making similar tools but the truth is the rods arent big or sturdy enough. I snapped two custom tools in half and bent a hardened steel socket. The bushing didn't budge one bit. Depending on how corroded the original bushings/balljoints are, you may have a difficult time removing them with home-made tools. Some have done it but I found it best to not waste my time. Plus flying steel is never safe. Wear eye protection.
