Default Lower Strut Bushing cannot be replaced??

Im pulling out my old struts and putting in new Bilstien 5100's. I got eveything taken off BUT I could not get the lower strut bolt to slide out. I beat, pryed, sprayed.. everything i could. I didnt want to take a torch to it since it is partially rubber. So i just cut the lower brackets of the strut off. Went to every auto place and even called the dealer. Everyone is telling me i have to spend $450/side to buy new lower control arms that have the bushing!! this is a load of $hit if ive even seen any. Really a $10 bushing and theyre gonna try to screw me that hard. What the hell Is there any aftermarket bushings anywhere? or am i really out $900 on a simple strut swap. somebody please help me before i loose my mind
