2004 BMW 325i Question: replace control arm bushing

can i replace a control arm bushing on my 2004 325i bmw by myself or do i need a shop -
Answer 1
Beside the fact that there is no easy access to it unless it's on a lift, you need a press or a special toot to push out the old bushing and install the new one. The alignment of the bushing is also important. I'd take it to a shop to do it, and replace both, not just one side. Zee -
