Keep dreaming. New lower control arms are $150+ each.
Bushings are like $20 something, and the lower ball joints are $40 each for Moog.
OP, you can remove the torsion bar using a c-clamp, but you have to realize that there's a very high risk for injury doing it this way. The C-Clamp can easily bend, slip, and fly off if you aren't careful. I always disconnect the sway bar links and the shock so that the control arms can droop all the way down. This usually takes a lot of tension off of the torsion bars and tends to make it easier to "unload" them.
