front sub-frame bushing help

I have read a lot of threads on front sub-frame bushings and have a question. On a W115 do you need to take the engine mounting bolts out? Can I use jack stands under the body and use a jack to raise and lower the sub-frame from under the coil spring?(one side at a time)

I have.

No you don't need to disconnect the motor mounts.

Disconnect the shock, brake line, sway bar link. Place a jack under the lower control arm and then remove the 2 15mm mounting bolts, slowly lower the jack and pry out old bushings and install new ones.

Only do one side at the time. Good Luck
