yes i have, and its a C***. i would put the car on jack stands as its sooo much easier and u can move. but i would get a manual aswell to relarte to pictures unless u no what im talking about.

1. loosen the wheel nuts.
2.Raise the vechicle and support it secursely on jackstands, remove the wheel
3. remove the disc brake caliper and hang it out of the way. (use electrical cable so u dont put stress on brake line.)

4. Disconnect the stabiliser bar link at the lower control arm.

5. Remove stock absorber lower mounting bolt from the lower control arm.

6. Remove the split pin and castle nut from the upper ball joint stud, and separate the upper ball joint from upper control arm.

7. loosen the lower control arm inner pivot bolt and loosen the radius rod nuts.

8.open the bonnet and remove the 3 shck absorber upper mounting bolts from the shock tower.

guide the shock absorber (strut) unit out of the wheel well.

refitting the back the front to removing.
