How many hours to replace all 4 of the rear subframe bushings?

Does anyone know how many hours to replace all 4 of the rear subframe bushings? I heard you have to pull the exhaust down and remove all the heat shields.

thanks.

don't need to drop the exhaust or any heat shields... I just did the DIY last week... it's actually quite simple but just time consuming...

the subframe will need to be lowered but NOT completely dropped... you don't even have to touch the suspension arms..

I did powerflex rear subframe bushings and like said above it is time consuming it took me about 6 hours. Personally it was the most miserable thing I had to do.

Ask your SA but I'd guess no; they are probably classified as wear & tear.
