Pretty much anywhere that does your basic auto maintenance and more. For example I went to Meineke because I couldn't get my #1 bushings out after trying to press them out numerous times. Downside is they charged me 60 bucks to press out 2 with me pressing in all of them on my own.

Machine shops can do it. However, if its the LCA #1 arm, then it needs to be burnt out and a sawzall to cut the ring. My shop charged me $50 for both burning out and pressing new FIGs bushing in.

OK thanks. Seems like kind of a custom thing so i didn't know if shops would look at me weird for my request. I'm aware of the difficult removal. Perhaps I should source some used arms so the downtime is minimized for installation of the bushings.
