The top hat clamps to the rod via the center nut (exposed bolt in the center) and the top hat clamps to the car via the two nuts (14mm I think) on the strut tower. Then you have the two 17 bolt/nut to the knuckle. Plus the brake line clip (use pliers or a screwdriver/hammer and pop it out). Overall, It's really easy. Are you having to swap the spring to a new strut or were you able to buy complete unit(s)?
