Old thread, but I'll add my comments for the benefit of future readers. I just did both of my control arms.
Yes it can be done, but... first make sure there is room to pull out (forward) the bolt on the front bushing. On the vert, both sides, no problem. On the sedan/coupe, there may be an engine mount in the way. I don't know which, left, right or both, or which engine(s). If that's the case, you may need to loosen the subframe, etc. and support the engine.
The video is accurate but no, it's not a 6 min. job. Nothing comes out or goes back in that easily. Especially if you don't have a hoist. But it's doable. They skip showing you the part where you need to tighten the bushing bolts with the suspension loaded. That's critical. Also, if your new arm comes with a balljoint grease fitting, tape over the hole to keep dirt out. Don't put the fitting in until you're done. You will need to jack up under the balljoint and you don't want to have the jack on the grease fitting. That will ruin your day.
Get the best arm(s) you can. I heard many reports about failures at 1-2 years. Even if you get a lifetime warranty, it's a lot of work and you don't want to do it yearly. I got Moog, we'll see if they last. Make sure you put a new pinch bolt on the balljopint. My arm came with a new bolt. If yours doesn't, get one from a dealer.
And make sure you look up the torque for each bolt, it's critical to safety and longevity.
