When I did the control arms on my 201, it was cheaper to buy new control arms (with bushings & ball joints already installed) than it was to buy the parts and have them pressed in. And as an added benefit, I could do it all in one weekend, as apposed to take them out one weekend, take them to the shop for press work on Monday, then install them next weekend.

Just food for thought.
