I would strongly disagree. Removing axles is as easy, as removing 12 bolts. A child can do it.

Also, having differential removed completely out of the car makes it 10 times easier to access each of these bushings, maneuver around them with wrenches, hammer, etc. Plus, if you are not in the shop, and your car is simply up on jack stands, and you are squeezed in there, lying on your back(!!!) - having as much room as possible under the car and around the parts is VERY IMPORTANT.
