I'm not certain if the proper way, but I use a upholstery tool that has the split end on it for like door plastic that you find at the atuo parts store, then pry them apart wit ha hammer. If they break, I use a smaller screw driver to split them. Them I push the new tabs/plastic bushings in, spray with graphite grease then slide the control arms in. They will be a little tight for a day or two and will loosen for me. I've not had them super tight to where I couldn't turn at all.
