71' C3 Strut Rod replacement question

Do I have to disconnect my rear spring cushion assemblies to remove and replace my strut rods? I realize the lower shock mounts are going to be a pain!

Thanks - Which wire is the "resistor wire" - white one at coil + side? Is "resistor" under dash or in engine bay? I checked and Zip does not offer a "resistor" for C3s, only the 60's cars.
