How complicated is this process
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 26 days ago.

well you need a car lift or jacks , air gun will be best ,since the bolts will be hard to remove , but a socked with wrench will do , but will take more time .

it is around 4 hour job if you changing all 4 bushing on the cradle

Please let me know if you need anything else on it
