Replacing idler arm on 96 2wd chevy s10

Hello guys I have a question and was wondering to anyone who owns a chevy s10 mine being a 96 is it hard replacing an idler arm and is it a job that takes a lot of time to do. Also any special tools needed? I don't want to try to do this job if its difficult. Hope someone who has done this job can help with info.
Thanks
Eric

I've done a couple four wheel drives. It's a half hour job. I wouldn't think 2wd is any harder but I could be wrong. All you need is a tie rod separator, a big hammer, and basic sockets and wrenches.

Hello thanks for the help on the info. Was talking to a guy at the auto store and he said he just did as10 and put all new tie rods on and other front end stuff and said its not hard at all. He said just basic tools and a fork type tool called a ball joint separator. After my truck is painted and sitting back in my driveway I will see about doing my first front end job
Take care and thanks again
Eric
