I think the w114/115 suspension is VERY similar to the r107/c107, and I found that it's easiest to replace the links on both sides at the same time. I was swinging my swaybar up and down, and it was totally disconnected from the suspension. I think that I had the front end up on jack stands though so I could get easier access to the links with the wheels off.
But I'm pretty sure that if you want to squeeze under the car and try to remove the links when the car on the ground you'd be Ok. I just don't see why you'd want to try it with the car on the ground, other than to prove you can work in tight spaces.
I would think that it would be much easier to remove the links first if you are trying to remove the entire sway bar.
My dream car is a classic sporty five speed (stick+overdrive) convertible that seats five. If, you want 70's-80's Mercedes tuner wheels, let me know.
