Front end bushings

Although I do most routinework on my 98 E300D, 67,000 miles, I have never changed front bushings, ie on the sway bar and control arms. Is this a job for the pros, or is it easier enough for someone competent with tools to attempt. I have a rumble and subdued knocking from the front on rough roads, and my MB dealer service man put it on the lift and said it is most likely the bushings. They can't do the job for a month, and so I am itching to try it myself.
Another question is does my alignment change with new bushings?
Another question:....if I leave the probably worn bushings alone, will serious damage occur?
Thank you for any advice.
