Are upper control arms easy to put in?

I am thinking about ordering some upper control arms to go with my lowers. I was just wondering if i could just unbolt the stock uppers and then bolt the new ones in, with the jeep just sitting on flat concrete?

Is this possible?
Thanks.

The rears are a piece 'o cake... just bolt em in. as for the front do one at a time and use your factory bottle jack wedged between the frame and lower shock mount. The front axle will try to rotate the pinion up with spring force.... so the jack is necessary if you dont want to fight with the bolts.... and safer than the 2x4 prybar meathod.... its a 30 minute job
