The service manual says to remove the dash, but you don't need to. I recently replaced the bushings. It is a tight squeeze, and you have to work one-handed, but it can be done.
FWIW, I found that one of the retaining rings was missing, and there were metal fragments (which probably caused the premature failure of the bushings). Also note that the diagram only shows 2 bushings. You need a total of 4 for an automatic.
