Saturn ION-1 How hard is it to replace the sway arm bushings

This answer was rated:

How hard is it to replace the sway arm bushings on a 2004 Saturn Ion 1? The front end is clunking at slow speeds and over bumps. I can wiggle the sway arm with my hand. I'm a backyard mechanic.



Is it the bushings in the first 2 pics below,,,or the last pic?

It is in the last pic. When I grab the sway arm and wiggle it, I can see it move and here it rattle in that bushing.




I was hoping for your sake it was the other bushings,,,,you might be able to sneak it out of there by just removing the bolt that clamps it down. If the bushing has a split in it, you should be able to work it out of there, Otherwise you have to remove the bar, and that requires A LOT of work.
