Question Whiteline rack and pinion bushings

Happy new year! Does anyone have any experience changing out the rack and pinion bushings? I'm thinking about getting a set from Whiteline for my STi. Curious as to the difficulty of the install... Thx

Wow. That's all I have to say about changing out the rack and pinion steering bushings. Surprising difference for 30 U.S. Dollars!!! Someone else has to have done this as well?
