cheers Mike.
When I changed mine a couple of weeks ago turning the steering as you say hard over did give better access but an angle grinder
My god the top nuts were hard to undo due to rust.

It really is 20 seconds to cut the top nut off. The thing to do is to cut the drop link just BELOW the fixing bracket in line with the flats. The droplink falls away and you just pull the nut and thread out from the top

Default Front drop links removal

This thread should help for those whom do not have a grinder, or do not feel safe using one to cut the link or nut off.

oh yes of course , I was thinking it was cutting the nut above the bracket.

Thanks stocktake for putting me right

I've got a box full of assorted dust covers from my local motor factor by Mafco - all sizes just for this very occasion. Make sure the ball joint is in fine condition, grease and fit new boot.
