Will I be able to remove the head from a 2.4L engine,without first removing the rocker arms?

I am replacing the head gasket on my 1998 2.4L stratus, and dont want to mess with removing the rocker arm/rocker arm shaft assemblies. Can I still get the head bolts out, or not?

    you can get the bolts out, but what about the pushrods, you have a chance of bending them and you wont be able to install them, when you get the head back on, unless you loosen the rockers.

    don't quote me on this but i think you will have to remove the rocker Assembly just don't remove or lose the spacers on top of valves
