Theirs a few really good DIY's to help you that you can follow. If your getting new control arms, make sure you find out if they come with the bushings pre pressed or not. Tie rods are pretty straight forward, just make sure the number of threads showing on the new ones matches the old ones. You will have to get an alignment afterwards though.
Get the complete kit.
-If you have access to a 20 ton press you can press the control arm bushings into the lollipops, then press them on the arms before you put them on the car.
-Tie rods are a piece of cake they pop right out of the spindle.
-Do the struts and the sway bar end links at the same time (get the pre pressed ones they are cheap).
-I suggest M3 solid Control arm bushings (non offset) the are more robust.
-The arms should have new ball joints installed. Installing the inner ball joint be careful you can use a jack to load the ball joint so it doesnt spin as you tighten it to torque.
-If you press the control arm bushings onto the control arms before putting it in the car its a piece of cake.
-If you try to press the control arm busshings onto the control arms after putting the control arms on the car its a real 'bastard' job.
Took my friend and I 4 hours to do all of it (including struts , strut mounts and strut tower reinforcements), but we were inside on jackstands with a pellet stove on concrete (and air tools).
Expect to pay about 300 bucks all together. Get high quality parts (no chinese parts bro..)

You better get them on the control arm in the right position or you'll be screwed.
You can press bushings into the lollipops with a good vise, push the bushings onto the control arm with various tools and home made contraptions. u n d e r s t e e r . c o m
