Few quetsions about changing struts in an XI.

Hey guys, I asked this question in the XI forum, but have not received a single comment, so I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I'm debating if I should replace the front struts on the wife's E91 myself, or just pay to have them done. I looked up the steps in the TIS and compared it to the RWD version since there are a few DIY's out there. Looks like there are a few things for the RWD version that are supposed to be removed according to TIS that aren't in the DIY's. (control arm, tie rod and tension strut). AWD lists removal of the control arm, tie rod and guide joint (stabilizer link is on both and removed in the DIY). So I'm just wondering if I can simply remove the stabilizer link and drop the knuckle enough to get the strut out like in the RWD DIY's, or if I really have to disconnect everything else.

Thanks
