Bit of a long answer this but here goes.
Undo bottom ball joint.
Undo drop links
Pull bottom ball joint from lower hub/knuckle.
Take bolt out of strut bottom. (long bolt at the bottom of the fork).
Undo hub nut.
Pull all hoses,abs cable off strut.
Undo both nuts holding strut in place.
Pull knuckle out and back to release driveshaft.
there should now be enough room to drop the strut and fork down.
If all goes really smoothly and you have a windy gun it takes about 45 mins. If it doesn't it can take a day!! trust me as thats what happened to me. Drivers side 45mins. Passenger side 1 day!
