That's the one I used. A lot cheaper then what a shop would charge you.

Do yourself a favor and buy a 1/2 24mm deep socket and long breaker bar.
That will get you half way there. You will have to switch to a big adjustable or a 24mm open end wrench for the last few turns to pop the bushing out.

I purchased something like this...

But more likely you'll want something local...
