CR-V rear sway bar links

Has anyone replaced the sway bar links on a 01 CR-V?
The left rear looks like you have to remove the rear spring shock assembly in order to remove the link as there is not enough room to get by the shock.
Thanks

Replaced the links this morning, no rear spring shock removal necessary, it wasn't a real tuff job,about 45mins with air tools.
