alrighty.... i got the coils off the struts and i cut the housings!!

first thing i did was compressed the coils with a $30 coil compressor from princess auto


Then i removed the top strut nut


pulled off the nut, washer, strut mount and spring



remove the strut insert collar, i used the tool in the picture and "gently" nudged the collar loose


and everything apart!
