DIY Control Arm Bushing. Is it hard?

I need to replace the upper and lower bushing in my SLK55 AMG. How hard is this? What tools are required? Thank you!

I recently replaced upper control arm on my SLK 350. It was easier to replace the entire arm (and not that much more expensive) than to replace a bushing.
The only special tool you need is a M-B ball joint separator.
