By bushing cap I reckon your speaking about the two "A" arm pivot shaft caps. A long break handle and a vice, or the crook of a tree if a vice is not around is suitable to hold the arm while loosening the old caps or installing the new ones. The threads are very fine and shallow and may appear to be stripped but in all likelyhood are not. Never-the-less, inspect closely for obvious damage.

There are no bushings on the upper arm. The shaft typically comes as an assembly with new hex caps which also include new 'o' ring seals. Be sure to pack the hex nuts w/grease and when reassembling. Keep the shaft centered in relation to the a-arm during reassembly also. You may want to drill the caps and install grease zerks for periodic lube.

For reference, look at your old unit closely before taking it apart.
