W126 guide rod bushing

I've been reading the archives on replacing the guide rod bushing on a W126. Lots of comments that you need a hydraulic ram and a nautical vocabulary to shift the lower control arm forward enough to reinstall the guide rod.

Is it not possible to release the rear guide rod bracket (one crossmember and two big bolts) and get the front of the guide rod situated first? This isn't an option in a W123 but seems like the way to go in a W126.
