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!
