Default Tool for front diff bushing

I'm looking for a tool to chance the bushing with the subframe still on the car. Is there a good single tool available to fit in the space?

Thanks in advane

Could I simply enlarge the center hole of the bushing to fit a 16mm bolt?

I used an eBay bushing extractor set. Worked well for me. Willing to rent.

A standard ball joint press from any auto parts store will do the trick
