Rear upper control arms?

Hey guys, How difficult would it be to change the rear upper control arms and bushings on a 67 el camino with a 12 bolt? I have never done this before. Any thoughts?

Not too bad with some muscle, cheater pipe on the end of the ratchet, and a can of PB blaster penetrating oil. Be sure to use a good jack and stands under you elky, work safe!

A lot of times these things have the bolts seized to the bushings and you end up cutting the bolt head and nut off and replacing with all new.......It is almost 45 years old after all.
