Definitely do it man, once you start on it you will see that it's not too bad. Really take your time with the rear one so you don't cross thread it like others have said. I suggest threading the new bolt in without the bushing first, so you can see the angle it needs to go in at. When I did that it went in right away. also remember the rear kb bushing has the holes slightly closer together than they should be, you will have to start one (preferably the passenger side one) first and then get the bushing to flex slightly to get the other bolt to start, also leave the first bolt only threaded in about halfway before you do that. It really isn't too bad though.
