    So what would do the job better? I don't want body parts ripped off when a spring goes flying.

    The only problem you'll have is undoing the top nut,we had to grind down a ring spanner to fit the nut and a decent torx bit for the strut insert as they are tight.

    if you use an air gun for the top shock bolt it comes straight un done ! i'd suggest you do that first even if it means taking it to a garage and getting them to slacken it a tiny bit ! will save alot of hassle ! on the back , you can undo the bolt that goes through the bottom arm ! where it meets the strut ! then all you need is a jack of some kind to raise it back into place . only takes 10 mins a side if you use this method !
