Front Spring removal

Have a '91 300D and would like to remove the front springs. Can they be take out by loosing and then lowering the control arm the way the rears can or do they have to be compressed first? Replaced all rubber bushings in the rear and now it's time to tackle the front. Need struts and want to take out those control arms to look at the bushing. Thanks
