well then it does make it easier. you unbolt the one thats in there and swap them over. but there is a bolt you have to undo to allow the rest of the gear under there to drop enough to get it out. ill find you a pic and highlight the bits that need doing

ok obviously you know the 3 bolts at the top. the 1 bolt on the bottom and the other one you have to undo is in the pic i posted with this reply.

obviously not a stock brake setup but its off an E series. you have to undo the clip then the bolt and use a ball joint breaker to remove the items apart. then the whole brake setup will drop and with a little moving and thinking you can just remove the strut setup and bolt in your new setup and rebolt it up :)

Why pop the ball joint? I hope your fitting camber kits?
Undo the 2 bolts on the brake caliper and remove from the disk rotor.
Undo the top pivots via the 4 nuts inside the engine bay and the whole lot will swing out of the way.
This also means that you olnly have 2 more nuts and bolts to undo to fit the kits.
