If you are removing one side or the other for simple replacement, it can be done without a huge issue. If it's the nut side (right?), you can just unbolt everything and pull it off. Replacement will require a bit of jiggery/pokery but no big deal. If you have to replace the bolt head side (like I did), you'll have to push it through from the nut side with a shaft of some kind to keep one side lined up when you pull the swing arm pivot bolt all the way out. Incidentally, the front axle works perfectly for this. I've read of others doing this with a long socket extension.
If you want them both off at the same time... I'll defer to Red.
