It depends on your skill level and the amount of desire you have to spend most of an entire day getting it done. The frame mounted bushing is difficult to remove and has to be pressed out, preferably with an air ratchet. Clearances are tight, it's dirty work and it is difficult all the way around.

If you have a short sawzall, it can be cut lengthwise and it'll come out easily, but getting access to it is a job.

Getting the new one in is just as much fun as getting the old one out.

Screw that. I've done that. Spent a day on one side cutting it out. Mine where rusted in all around. Cheated on the other side. Pushed the rubber out of the new one and just reused the sleeve. Worked for me. Lubed it up to get it in. I will not do another one again. Though, the P.O. left mine to set in the snow for several years so maybe that had something to do with it. Torch may make it easier to do.

ok thanks for the advice I'm not going to mess with them I'm just going to pay to have them done. I'm also going to replace the ball joints at the same time and think I'm going to go with gen uca and i have asked before but if i just buy some for lets say 94 will they bolt right up with no problem even with the gen 1 lowers?

I got aftermarke gen 2 uppers for a 96. They bolted up, but you need longer bolts and need to fill it with 1/8-1/4 of an inch or so of alignment shims. Obviously, alignment needed.

Ive heard of reports of the bushing bolts coming loose without lock tight. The ball joints in the arms were junk. I got half an inch play in one after 3k miles and had to buy premium replacements. But with $60 for both arms on eBay and $40 for ball joints, its still a deal.

the uca should all be the same from 92 to 98 correct? so i can search for the best price and use any of those years. I'm looking at some acdelco ones rock auto with ball joints that should be ok.

I don't remember the year range... just remember mine being 1996 SR ones. Sorry.

Also, did a quick looksie. The a.c. delco ones in the pic look just like my ebay ones. (Didnt do any research though) They look to cost $100 each, so if they are China good make style, for the money, maybe step up to mitsu oem from mitsubishi-parts.net or grab the ebay cheapest?
