Putting my OME lift on this weekend...

So if I read this thread correctly, if that lower strut bolt won't come out, I can just remove the upper control arm and lean the strut out away from the engine bay to put the new strut and spring on the fork?

when i did my OME i did not remove the upper control arm..its not needed. It is only need to do that if you are doing a budget boost kit. bc the entire strut put together with the pucks are to long..but with the OME the size is close to the same as stock.
