The trailing arm bearing, if that's what you mean is pretty straightforward. You have to take the wheel off but you can leave the brakes etc. attached.
Get a bearing kit
Undo the trailing arm bolt - knock it out
Remove the bearings and sleeves - fit the new ones
Hoist the new arm, plus brake and hub back into the subframe
Re-fit trailing arm bolt.
The trailing arm weighs about 20lb so the real *****-fight is lifting it back into the subframe. You may need a burly mate to help you get under the beast to lift it up.
Since it involves a lot of heaving and shoving, swearing and cups of tea.. make sure the car is on axle stands rather than doing it on the jack (and you may be using the jack to support the trailing arm a bit).
No bullets for Chaingun..
