[Biturbos4] Control arm magic?

I've been working to replace the front suspension control arms on my '01 S4, fighting the 
usual stubborn ball joints, etc.  One thing has me a little stumped.  The bolts on the 
inside ends of the rear-most lower control arms run into the body before they come far 
enough out to remove the arms.  There is no mention of it in the factory ELSA information. 
Do I have to drop the subframe (!) just to make enough room to remove the bolts.  Seems 
ridiculous.  Any experience out there?
