Default Control arm bushings and power steering rack

Took my car in today (2006) for a steering and suspension look over. They found the control arm bushings are beginning to separate, and that my power steering rack has a leak. Are these things that could be done by me and my hubby at home or should I have the mechanic do them?

That depends- You could ask if you could run for your local State rep seat just as well ...

Both will require hand tools and lots of patience, as well as commitment to
research to read old posts & acquire manual- Most important is ability to overcome the inevitable obstacle (broken bolt or seized chassis nut)
Some simply don't have this stuff-

Thanks, we decided not to do it ourselves simply because of the obstacles. When we did our own brake pads there were so many obstacles that a one day job turned into a three day job and $150.
