    Any decent Indy should be able to tackle these no problem.
    I did mine a couple of months back, to be honest its not a massive job, i had never done any of these before and had it all done in about 4 hours.
    The job is not particularly 'hard', just time consuming.

    Basic hand tools, 3/8" socket set, female torx sockets, chisels, hammer, hacksaw blades, bush pulling kit etc.. Nothing fancy required, just general tools.

    With universal bush pulling kit as listed above. Hardest part is getting the old ones out, i found the easiest way was to remove the core, the bit the bolt goes through, then cut through the shell, the ring that goes around the outside with a hacksaw blade then pull out with tool or knock out with hammer and chisel, pressing the new items in was a doddle in comparison to removal. Clean up aperture with bit of scotchbrite and some brake cleaner then a little bit of lube (i used soapy water) on the new bushes and draw them in with bushing tool.

    Any link / brand to which one you used? I've seen some rubbish ones (that break!) so it would be good to know which one worked for you.
    Thanks in advance
