    I have new Moog LCA's and got the Moog bushings out in just a few minutes with some heat and a bottle jack, thanks to @Crom writeup. Now it's time to press in the new Whiteline bushings in. I have some adapter sleeves from a ball joint install kit that fit over the Whiteline bushing rubber to press the outer metal sleeve and a shop press at work. I know it's a pretty tight fit; any advice for those that did it themselves?

    Put the bushing in the freezer and heat up the LCA with a blow torch should help.

    Yep. Science for the win.
    Just to make sure, I should not push on the rubber, only the outer metal sleeve when installing, right?
