Default Accord Strut Install í93

undo the pinch bolt and remove the strut from the fork. Even with a
pry bar I canít push the lower arm down enough to remove the fork. Am
I going to have to remove fork itself or maybe the swaybar?

It sounded pretty easy but......

I've found it easier to remove the fork when changing struts as long as the
lower bolt on the fork will come out.
