Re: Lower wishbones - nightmare Job
It's a b***ch of a job alright, but doable! At least the 2nd side is easier than the first! You dont need to remove the suspension strut or the fork entirely, but you can loosen (or remove) the nuts on the top mount, this gives you room to move the tuning fork about.
I think Gazza's guide doesn't say it's neccessary to disconnect the upper wishbone balljoint, but I found this essential so I could wiggle the hub around while fitting the balljoint. I found it much easier to line up the inner mounts first before attaching the balljoint, and then using a jack to help line up the bolts and balljoint.
No need to disconnect driveshaft (I didn't anyway) though I can see how that would give you more room to move things around.
