W140 Class control arm bushings

I am told that I need to replace my lower control arm bushings. Is this a DIY project or will I have to let a shop do it? If DIY does anyone have step by step for the project?
Thanks in advance.

Lower bushings

The lower bushings are "hydraulic" and require a special tool to install. It will be quite a job if the car is not on a frame lift. The front springs need to be compressed so the "A" arm can be released. I had mine done at the dealer, they replaced the bushings in the sway bars at the same time, it makes quite a difference
