8. I had to remove the nut from the strut tower bar (1) to access the nut on the strut.
9. Remove the 3 nuts that hold the strut in place (2) and the strut will drop out of the vehicle.

For the rear springs:
1. Jack up the rear of the vehicle and support with jack stands.
2. Remove the rear wheels.
3. Remove the bolt that holds the lower control arm to the spindle.

4. Once the bolt is removed, lower the control arm with a jack. You will have to push it down by hand to remove the rear spring.

How much of the bump stop do I cut off? And which part of the bump stop do I cut off?
