[s-cars] Front control arm R&R

When I was replacing shocks and springs on my car I tried to remove the
lower control arm to make it easier to remove the strut.  No F'ing way.  The
bushing is longer than the opening the control arm goes into, so without
removing the bushing the control arm is trapped.  Getting the bushing out
will require some type of puller but I haven't looked into much to figure if
it's something someone could easily fabricate with normally available garage
items and matchsticks.
