Wrong! The upper strut bushing is NOT load-bearing and easily changed with
the car on the ground and the strut assembly on the car. It takes maybe 15
minutes to do both sides (if your car doesn't have gas-pressurized inserts,
be careful not to let the shafts fall through the hole as it's a real pain
to pull them back out again!).
