Hi There, I'm Clayso a certified master automobile technician with 30 years of automotive repair and diagnostic experience and I'm here to help with this problem. Additional services may be offered for detailed information.
You won't need anything special to separate the strut from the lower control arm, you will however have to have a spring compressor to change the springs and upper strut mounts from one strut to the other. You can remove the strut from the vehicle and have a tire store change over the struts for you. The service procedure is in the link below. The torque specification for the front axle spindle nut is 125 ft.lbs.

For the bottom mounting bracket, I've removed the bolt and wedged a flat chisel in the gap to spread the bracket from around the bottom of the strut. WD-40 and a heavy hammer are a great help.
I hope this information is helpful to you.
Should you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks so much.
