Hi, is this front or rear anti-rollbar? Front ones are a right pain, you have to drop the front subframe for access. If you don't have a wheelfree ramp then it's not a job for the faint hearted! You also need to disconnect the steering column to allow the subframe to drop far enough to get at the bolts that secure the collars over the bushes. Before you disconnect the steering column, point the wheels straight ahead and remove the key so that the steering lock stops the steering wheel turning, this is to prevent damage to the contact reel for the air bag, which can be damaged if the steering is turned too far beyond normal rotation!

I have been informed by a local shop that my wife's Volvo needs to have the bushing replaced on both of the front lower control arms. My wife Volvo has less than 50k miles. As a result, I am very...

I would be also. Without being there to see them myself, I can't diagnose the problem. But you can check them yourself if your up to it. You have to raise the front of the car to get the wheels off the ground. you can do one at a tie if you want. you will need a pry bar, use it to try to move the lower control arms. if there is any movement or sloppiness with them then they do need replaced. you will get a rotating movement at hte bolts and bushing as the tire is susposed to move up and down. but if they move any other way replace them. Also if they were bad, You would hear them making some sort of clunking sound, at bumps and turning.
Good luck

Several possibilities, control arm bushings, strut mounts/strut, or there is an O-ring kit that may need to be installed on the sub frame bushings.
