Control Arm Bushings

My 92 300E has only 113k on it. Is it possible that I would need Control Arm Bushings at this point. I have left front suspension rattle if I go over a small bump such as center lane reflective marker. I just replaced the front shocks and that had no baring on the noise. HELP!!

Thanks for your timely response. I've owned at least one MB for the last 40+ years and have done most of my repairs except getting inside the engine. Although I classify myself experienced in DIY mechanical projects is replacing these bushings a job best left to my indie shop? I may lack some special tools
to tackle the project.
