Another tip:
When your new struts arrive, before installing springs in them, trial-fit each one onto its steering arm. In case one or both do not fit.
It is so easy to install the lower end of a springless strut to the point of seeing that all the bolts go in, and it can save a lot of trouble.
I bought new struts, had the springs transferred by a shop, and one strut did not fit. I only hope its replacement does.
