R&R SF bushings before or after pulling SF?

Pulling the whole rear end out this weekend to do a bunch of things.
Been reading conflicting threads on if it's easier to remove the
subframe bushings while it's still attached to the car or after I pull it down.

The difficult part of changing the subframe bushings is getting everything to line up sufficiently in order to get the bolts started. I don't think it will make much difference either way. It's one of those sometimes you get it on the first try or it becomes an all afternoon affair of manipulation.
