i just have one tip: if the steering arm won't pop off the strut with a few hits of the hammer, DO NOT KEEP HAMMERING IT FOR A HALF AN HOUR THINKING IT WILL POP OFF EVENTUALLY. we did that, warped it and couldn't get the bolt back on. we even tried cutting it with a dremel to "rethread it." haha funny stuff. i had to drive it that way to a shop the next morning.

i don't know. we did the left side all easy, but the right side steering arm would just not pop off. he has lowered a bunch of cars before with no problems. just my luck i guess.
