If you have the tool go for it. It isn't difficult and you'll have a sense of accomplishment.

Take the 10mm jam nut off the bottom. Remove the screw and remove the lever. Lightly grease the bushing on the new lever and install it.
Don't overmtighten the screw. Reinstall the 10mm jam nut on the bottom and don't overtighten it either.
Alternatively you can swimg by the shop and I'll do it no charge.
