Thanks for the great DIY. Helped a lot this weekend, even though the job is very easy—good idea to get oriented.

FYI—I was able to change both thrust arms WITHOUT removing the pinch bolts and sliding the struts. Used an open end 22mm box wrench on the ball joint end of the thrust arms. Make the whole process a lot more easy.
