the bolts on top, i hope you only undid the outer 3, and not the one in the middle! the middle one is the top of the strut and will keep the spring compressed until you get the whole assembly out.

you should also undo the sway bar. undo both sides and it will swing down out of the way. also undo the top ball joint and then the stub will drop down. don't forget to remove abs wire off the strut housing. holding the disc down you should be able to maneuvre the strut assembly out.



eb v8: low loud and fast. just how a v8 should be. i guess the big question is, is it fast enough...
