Lower A-Arm bushings 1800 1970

Getting ready to replace these. Tested the through bolts and they both turn (Whew!). Can somebody (or somebodies) give me the bullet points of what I should know before I tackle this job. Are there things that should be reinforced? Can the bushings (standard IPD metal-clad rubber, not poly) be pressed out/in with a big C clamp and sockets or do I have to go to a machine shop? Should I go with poly instead?

Did the uppers some time ago (poly), but they squeak until they get warm, so I may take them apart at the same time? Can/should they be lubed? What with?

Thanks for any hints you can offer.
