When I changed the struts on my 87 5000cstqa I Just jacked up the front of
the car.. marked the original position of the strut bearing.. then took it
off.. replaced it with the new one and lowered it.. same with the other
side.. to get the big nut off the top of the strut rod I used a 19mm? box
wrench (the circular end) and a hex wrench to hold it still..
