Presses are handy, But don't forget you can modify a log splitter nowadays. Some do 10 ton.

What's the price difference for replacing the bush vs new arms? (Balders' pics show a bit of rust- new arms might be easier and a better option if that's the condition people are finding them in?)

I know what you are saying, and like wishbones come as a complete unit as opposed to the typical 2 bushes and a ball joint involved.

So far not seen any whole arms from quality suppliers. Moog for example.
(A fleabay link will be posted no doubt)

No doubt arms will appear from china, paint like water colour, 1st sign of salt gives up.
The rubber bit, not as you know it, will crack and go off quickly.

As demand grows, quality aftermarket will grow.

Its a very similar bush to the old Rover 214 rear arms.

Beck Arnley make one to suit the US Escape (same vehicle) part number 1018003 .

The listing on Rock Auto lists it as also fitting:
2013-2017 C-Max
2000-2017 Focus
2004-2009 Mazda 3
2006-2015 Mazda 5
2008-2012 Volvo C30
2006-2012 Volvo C70
2004-2006 Volvo S40
2005-2011 Volvo V50

The Powerflex PFR19-812 (listed against Mk1 Kuga) is also listed for the Focus Mk1 to 3 vanilla models, ST and RS models. So it's a fair bet to suggest it will fit the Kuga Mk2 (same for the black version PFR19-812BLK.)

Searching for the Mazda 3 BK model brings up HardRace 6305, there's also this kit where you don't remove the outer shell SuperPro SP3466K . That also gives SuperFlex SF127-3466K (listed on Ebay etc in the UK.)

So there are a few upgraded options.
