And despite my skepticism,  Paul was quite correct. Of course, it helped 
that the sway bar and steering column were also removed. Getting it back 
together was a different matter - I used a  spring compressor on one side 
of the spring  and a jack on the opposing side under the spring pan to 
finally edge it back up to the shock. That was on the passenger side on 
Sunday. I'll do the other side next weekend.
