Repair guide says yes, remove AC condenser. I can only figure it's because of how cheap-ass Chevrolet can be, trying to save .01 cent in fasteners and making you pull a perfectly good condenser in order to remove the radiator. If you can't avoid it, then it might be more cost effective to let a shop do it, since they can recover most of the AC refrigerant then recharge system afterwards.
