If the bolts aren't loosened on the strut, then that part doesn't change where it currently is. The method I was talking about is not using a spring compressor, but putting a jack under the LCA, raising it slightly, removing the center nut, and then slowly lowering the strut. Yes the end link would have to be unbolted, but that would not impact alignment. At that point I wondered if the LCA would drop enough to reach up in the tower and replace the mount and then just reverse the order. That would eliminate the need for an alignment. Right now everything is aligned perfect and I just don't want it screwed up.
