Default 1999 f150 4x4 upper control arm bushing and balljoint replacement?

Hey, while i had my truck up on jackstands today doing the brake job i noticed that my upper control arm bushings were shot as well as my upper ball joints, how easy is it to replace these. I found that i could just buy the new control arm with new bushings and ball joint at napa for 74.99 which isn't bad. Im pretty mechanically inclined and have a garage full of tools, but is this something i really want to do myself? what is there to it?

Probably one of the easiest things do to other than filling gas. lol its an exaggeration but you get my points. With 2 people you could easily get it done in less than hour each side. You wanna get a camber kit because it messed up my camber pretty bad even when i put them exactly the same as stock with marks, but the alignment guy fixed that.
