Yea I'm pretty sure I loosened the 4 top bolts on the strut until they where almost off, and maybe even loosened up the bottom pinch bolt.. I can't remember for sure, and it was kind of a pain in the *** still as I recall.. I think I was doing it when I had my RRO 2.25 lift in place so that might make a difference also since spacers would move the spring to a different location.
Omelet said he removed his and reversed them in case he needed to remove them again. I'm not sure about cutting them, I think they are pretty stout and it might be quicker to just drop the strut at that point.
Yes I moved.... currently in Elkton, MD while we wait to close on a house in Claymont, DE (we were supposed to close 9/28 but dealing with some property line issues..) come out to RC Oct 27th weekend, there is a pretty good sized group planning on going.
