Or since this looks like a 60 dollar part, is it something that can be easily DYI'ed? (I don't really have access to a garage or proper tools, so not sure what would be cheaper in the end, plus the risk of messing with the suspension when you don't really know what you're doing)

Control arm bushing? Easy R&R! You'll need an alignment after, however.

But are you sure? Have you had it on a lift? How's the shock performing?
