New radius arm bushings... need help.

I've got some poly radius arm bushings ready to install. My question is, when I remove the rivets to take the bracket off what will the bracket do? Do I need to put a floor jack under the frame, radius arm or both? I'm not exactly sure what I need to support. If anybody that has replaced the bushings can give me a brief overview I would appreciate it. Thanks for the help.

I changed my bushing but on the passenger side with the bolts. I didnt use a jack or any other support. I just undid the bolts and the arm just shifted an inch or so. You'll need a steel bar to help you shift it back so you can bolt it up again. A second person might be handy while your working away. You going to drill and rebolt it?

Yeah, my passenger side is bolted, but the drivers side is riveted. I plan to drill the rivets out and replace them with bolts. Did you leave it on the ground with the tires on or did you put it up on jack stands?

Changed the bushing with the truck on a level gravel driveway. No jacks or nothing. Keeps your fingers free when you take out the last rivet when suspension shifts some.
