Default upper/lower control arm bushings....problemss.....

Has any replaced tbe bushing on their upper and lower control arms?? How much and how difficult? Ive got a raddeling noise up front, ive checked everything and when i looked at the bushings they looked dry rotten and loose. So thats the only thing i can think of what it could be.

The upper ball joint is part of the control arm and is replaced as an assembly. The lower ball joint is pressed in and serviceable if need be.
Check your sway bar end links and bushings for play. They will make all sorts of noise when the go bad. They are easy to change out and could very well be your problem.
