Yup. Sodding thing ::)

You can't quite get the strut far enough up to get at the top front bolt ::) Be easier if done when arms off as hub can then be pulled down... End up using a deep ring spanner and reusing bolt with threadlock :-X

If I did one again, I'd remove the strut and hub completely and disassemble/reassemble on a bench.  ;)

I have a pile of parts and special tools for the rear subframe bushes and ball joints sat looking at me.  ::)  In theory it looks easy, but I know differently!  ;D

Ive had a pair of rear doughnut bushes sat on my bench looing at me for the last year, but I keep finding excuses to postpone the job.
Might have to wait until after the winter now.  ::)
