+1 for what @iantt said, a "decent" garage will have the adapter kit which means they only have to drop a small part of the rear sub frame rather than the whole lot i.e. taking the rear trailing arm out.  You also want to be fitting a decent brand bush e.g. First Line, no "Chinglish" parts of eBay.

Bushes are about £25 each for a decent brand. I bought Ford parts when I changed them on my car in May this year. The tool is about £130.

The reason I changed them myself was that the local Volvo specialist (same as the V70 and S80's I think) wanted to charge me £400 and the Ford dealer, who quoted for less than £200, didn't actually have the tool.

Once fitted I had a full wheel geometry done and all has been fine since. The rear tyres had worn unevenly and the worn bushes caused handling issues like understeer and then oversteer on bends/corners.
