Drop one side of the cradle, unbolt control arm, bolt back in cradle, drop cradle on opposite side, unbolt control arm.

It totally smurfing sucks to do them without dropping the cradle. Buy yourself some rear cradle bolts and consider the cost an investment in saving time and grief.

Really helps to have access to a lift. I had to pry quite a bit to get the outer bushing bolt out and having the car way off the ground was necessary.
