Excellent and precise procedure, very professional oriented video, due the use of a hoist and the amount of tools needed. Very instructive though, it provides a very good picture of the assembly in question, and it might help the more daring, to DIY (maybe with less tools and more time available) without damaging anything too serious.

Massive Loop says:

Also, if you just get new top mounts you can avoid the trouble of compressing the spring to remove the stock hardware and also avoid the hassle in the event that the bearing gets worn out. If you spent a bunch of $$on a coilover set, you might as well get new hardware for the best possible result.

Massive Loop says:

A strut spreader tool makes it much easier to get the strut from the steering knuckle.
