Hello and Welcome to Justanswer, My name is XXX XXX I am here to try and assist your with your question.What tension are you trying to relieve?
not sure but it seems as if the bottom arm that holds the strut is under pressure i just cant seem to get it apart to get out drive shaft
Are you refering to the bottom where the strut mounts that I have marked in this diagram?

yes # XX
The #17 is the lower control arm and you do not need to remove the bolt. If you look further up on the steering knuckle which is #14, you will see 2 pinch bolts that have to be remove once you have them out, you pry down of the knuckle and the strut come out of the steering knuckle.
