Ive done a lot of seals on engines and transmissions that way, just dont know if the bushing sits too close behind the seal to let that work...
I'd say that you'd be running a huge risk of scratching or damaging the fork tubes by doing it that way. I'd suggest doing it the "right way" and disassembling the forks.
