just took the front struts out... quick description/how to

i like to loosen off the top the bolts for the strut mount


remove the brake caliper with bracket and hang it aside, i used some wire...


*** dont forget to remove the pad sensor on the driver side caliper as well as unhook it from the strut


unbolt the sway bar link


remove allen bolt on disc and remove the disc



remove the three bolts holding the strut to the (forget them name.... but the part that connects the control arms to the strut housing)


wiggle the strut back and forth and the strut should slide out and just undo the strut mount nutz the rest of the way and the strut should come right out
