PowerFlex Upper Control Arm Bushings?

** Powerflex support got back to me; they say to soap up the bush and to use a press to push it in. Thanks for the RE's guys! I'm going to try using streak-less glass cleaner instead of dish soap.

I bought these guys (PFF5-401 BLK) from VAC and I'm wondering on the install route. Problem is that unlike other PF bushings that come in two pieces, this is a single molded bushing which flanges out at either end.
Anyone have any install tricks/tips/advice for getting these in to my control arms?

This is what I'm used to working with:

Again any help would be appreciated.
