jack it up, stands under chassis rail. remove wheel, undo and pop top ball joint out. remove lower bolt, remove top 3 bolts and slide it out. easy enough. takes around an hour per side

u may need a long crowbar to lever the lower control arm down to get clearance to lift the strut lower over too. my first strut changeover took 3 1/2 hours coz it didnt use the crowbar
