Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be attempting to help you. What I suggest is purchasing or renting some spring compressors(from autozone or the like), compress the spring while it's on the car, then remove the strut. I've done this is my early years(over 10 years ago) and I got in a position that I couldn't be hurt, and i loosened the bolts. I got it out, but I damaged the cv axle in the process.
The spring compressor is easy, and you may not need someone else's strength. Also, the trick is to get the claws in the right spots so that they don't start to shift while you are compressing the spring.
Yes, you can. And no problem. If you have found this information helpful, a positive rating would be great. Thank you...
