U mean bushings! i get it! i was gonna ask the stupid question of "why would you have bushes on the front of a civic, some kind of crazy new go green thing?" but yeah, you should be able to replace the bushings and everything yourself, giving that you have a repair manual that gives step-by-step instructions(since u've never attempted it), jack/jack stands (or a car lift), and the proper tools that you would need to be able to do the removal/installation yourself. If you don't have the tools needed Autozone does rent-a-tool service, and if you can't get underneath at all, then yes, i would take it into a shop to be serviced.

Front end on passenger side "pops" when starting to accelerate after braking. '94 Dakota

Sounds like a bad bushing. Could be the brake strut rods (going from the lower control arm near the tires, up to the front of the frame near the radiator, the bushing is at the front. Or could be bushings on one or both of the control arms.Or it could be as simple as the wheel alignment shims have fallen out.

Best bet is to raise the front end on jackstands and carefully compare left and right sides, looking for any differences in rubber bushings or such where each suspension member attaches to the frame. If it is NOT the control arm that attaches to the coil spring, you can, if you have the tools and the ambition, remove the control arm yourself. The bushings are pressed in, so you can take the control arm to a machine shop (ask your auto parts store where to go) and have them press the new bushings in. You really should do both sides (left and right control arms) at the same time. You will need to get an alignment when you are done.

If you don't have the tools, knowledge, and ambition to do this yourself (it is not terribly complicated but it is difficult, and you have to have the right tools) then take it to a trustworthy repair shop. It's been years since I've had this done, but I'd guess it will cost around $300 for a shop to fix.

Excessive play in the steering wheel, car is all over the road. What could this be?

The steering gear box is worn out. And, there's probably worn front suspension components adding to the problem. You will need to check the following parts for looseness or movement: Idler Arm, Upper and Lower Ball Joints, Control Arm Bushings, Pitman Arm, Inner and Outer Tie Rod Ends, Front Hub Bearings. All of these can be replaced in your driveway with the exception of the Control Arm Bushings which are pressed in and require special tools to remove and install the bushings. If you can't replace all of them, concentrate your efforts on the following: Steering Box, Idler arm, and Control Arm Bushings. If you can afford to have all of them done, the front suspension would be factory fresh and should, with proper wheel alignment, drive like a new car.

Ball joints and steering box replacement

If you have a shop, repair manual and someone to help you it wont be to bad. But if you haven't ever done steering work before you might want to leave it to the pros. If you want to do it yourself read up on how to do it and everything you need including parts and tools.

Control arm bushings

Special tools are required. Definitely not for the novice. An alignment will be needed after the required work is performed
