Strut removal question September 10, 2021, 08:58:57 PM I'm trying to remove the old front struts in my stock '84 Thunderbird. I've removed the nut on top of the strut as well as both spindle bolts but the first strut I'm trying remove seems to be held up by the bushing assembly on top of the strut tower. Do I need to remove this bushing assembly to be able to remove the strut? I thought the bushing would loosen up after removing the nut on top of the strut but that's definitely not the case. Any advice on how to proceed?
