Assuming it's the same as when you order the body bushings from Dal you'll need like one wrench/socket (don't recall size), a shirt you don't mind laying on the ground with, and about 30 minutes...If you're slow. seriously.

Jeff I also have my body bushings sitting on the shelf waiting for the nicer weather to do it outside. Just the right size wrench and the right weather and some clearance helps. Clay

I think the bushing set is cheaper from Dal than the superstore. You'll need a torque wrench, too. The procedure is on the IGBA site in the technical section: http://www.B-Body.net/Technical/Susp...ngs/index.html
It probably won't take more than a half an hour.

15MM socket and about 1/2 hour. One of the best for the buck changes you can make.

About in the low 30s this last week or poring down rain. I have changed a few starters and u-joints in the snow or rain in the past. Any who my driveway has a incline to it I can get more clearance than in my garage.
