Anyone seen hpc3? I was going to try and attempt this tomorrow. How about this... Does anyone know if the strut assembly can be removed from the truck without compressing the spring or popping the upper ball joint loose?

By visual inspection I think dropping the a arm down without loosening anything except the sway bar end-link will work. Of course, a pry bar will definitely be in order. I think it will have enough drop to get the assembly out though. I really don't want to pop that ball joint loose if I can help it... as for the compressing... I don't think it can be done with the assembly still in the truck, not enough room. I know I will need to compress it to get the spring off the coil though.

All help is greatly appreciated!!
