I only replace the bushings and bearings if they have got rusty and pitted. The front one usually survives, but the bolt sure does corrode.
You have to punch the bearings out from the opposite side, then I press the new one in with an appropriate sized socket (or an old bearing) in the vice, or you can make up a bearing press with some threaded rod, washers, nuts, old bearing, etc.
