I did it on a '93 by compressing the spring first, jacking up the car, and getting just enough clearance to pull the top part of the strut out. When all was said and done, I'm not sure that it safe me anything except getting an alignment.

That'* the whole point of doing it that way. An added benefit is not having to fight the lower bolts. You have to put a spring compressor on it anyway, might as well use that to save some steps.

I don't get a chance to use my 4 pound sledge very often; I had fun.
