Default Lower control arm

Do I need any special tools to remove the lower control arm off a 02 bugeye? Is it a job the the dealer should do? @600$ I kinda like to do it myself save some rubies....

Just remember that the pivot bolts and sway bar link bolts should be torqued with suspension at normal ride height, so as not to stress the bonded rubber bushings.
