Because the interior panels should already be removed, you can now remove the 14mm top hat nuts located in the trunk.

At this point you can begin removing the oem suspension from the car. You will have to put some force on the rear suspension/rear control arm to have enough clearance to remove the OEM strut assembly from the rear. This especially true if one has not removed the sway bar link.

We decided to use a pry bar and pried from the front of the lower control arm through to the sway bar.

While one person pried the suspension control arm down (Or in our case our guy literally pushed down and that seemed to work too), another person removed the strut assembly. Again you may have to remove the rear sway bar if you aren’t able to safely remove the stock strut.
