Step 14 (removing the strut gland nut) was literally impossible for me. I live in an area with long winters and salted roads. All of the bolts and nuts gave me !&&*, but that one in particular was so rusted together that days of penetrating oil followed by torch heating had no effect. I just replaced the springs and gave up on the struts. This took me days to complete. I’d recommend paying a mechanic rather than attempting this if you live in a rusty area.
