suspension bushes

Looking to replace the upper and lower front wishbone bushes on my 1970 Ford XL.
The manual quotes special tools required. I find it hard to believe that your average US mech would go and buy these special tools. He would find a way using other things.
I have done stuff like this on Land Rovers for years now and there is always someone on a forum who knows a shortcut, sometimes with photo guidelines.
Is there such a tech archive for these old Ford babies?
Does anyone know of a shortcut without the "special tools"?

Re: suspension bushes

Probably lots of ways to do this...

I've done it with large deep sockets and/or pieces of appropriate size pipe and a large bench vise. And a BFH....

Sorry, I don't have photos but it's easy to figure out...
