If you loosen the inside lower control arm bolts (2)-(24mm i think). Then and only then with the weight on the wheels remove the 22mm bolt the holds the strut in place. From this point raise the vehicle so that the pressure from the springs is slowly released. Otherwise you will take your head off. At this point w/ the control arm loose and all your wires disconnected. (wheel speed sensors & ABS sensors) swing the complete assembly down and voila !!! This in no means is how it is done properly or is it intended to tell you how to do it, this is just my humble opinion if you are in a pinch.
