Default Replacing front trailing control arm bushing

The FSM says you need to remove the control arm and I'd want to redo the alignment if I did that. But I've seen some imply they were able to remove the trailing bushing with the control arm in place. There doesn't seem to be much room to pull it back off the shaft but maybe some twisting and torquing would do it??????

...IF THIS IS THE ALUMINUM BUSHING , YOU CAN GET IT OUT BY TWISTING AND USING A PRY BAR, I DID IT ONCE TO REPLACE THEM , THEN LATER IN MY VUE'S LIFE I DECIDED TO GO WITH COMPLETE MOOG LOWER CONTROL ARMS, JUST MY .02, DC

Thanks. I'm kind of thinking worse case if I can't get it far back enough to slide off I could remove the forward control arm bushing but keep the control arm attached to the knuckle.
