Question is when replacing them could I just jack up the front of the truck taking some of the load off and and unbolt the arm from the frame, slide it out and replace the bushings?
Been hearing a clunk in my front end recently. After doing some digging around with truck on hoist, we found a bad UCA bushing on the passenger side. I have the Cognito Ball Joint Tubular Upper Control Arm Kit with Dual Shock Mounts. SO... before I do something and find out its unnecessary, whats the best way to replace these? Is it as easy as doing what is mentioned above? Is re-alignment going to be necessary? Thanks!!

Should have an alignment done anytime you mess with the front end.
