Instead of two pivot bushings (like a normal car) they have a front pivot bushing and a rear strut bushing. The control arm has a threaded rod coming off the back that connects to the frame by sandwiching two halves of the bushing. Its an interesting design.

The control arm has to be removed. The strut bushing is easy to remove, the pivot one is a bit of a pain. But the control arm is easy to get out.

The pivot bushing (at least on mine) was welded in. It can be removed, by grinding off the weld then pushing out the rubber. I bought whole new shell and rubber, so I cut out the old shell. You can get polyurethane bushings without the shell and just push those into the old shell. If I had to do it again, I'd do it that way.
