Default 1991 940 SE Strut Replacement

I'm replacing the struts on my 91 940 for the first time. Do I have to remove the brake caliper and ball joint and disconnect from the control arm? Or, is there enough room to swing the assembly out while still connected to the control arm?

The caliper will need to come off. Ball joint would be a smart move, but if you're careful, it can be done without.

Thanks, I saw a number of threads where people did it without taking the knuckle off, but after some thought, it does seem easier to take it completely off of the car.
