once you drop the springs, everything should be a breeze, once i had the A-arm dropped when i did mine, everything was one or 2 bolts away from comming off.

dont be afraid to cut out bolts if they arnt comming, took me about 5 hours on one bolt, that was bent on one of the rear LCA's, i ended up having to cut it out, take out the LCA, put it on a bench, and drill out the bolt. :( that sucked a big one

you won't need a spring compressor.put it up on jackstands all the way around the car on the subframes.place the floorjack under the a-arm and lift it just to the point to where the a-arm has a little tension.mark where your cc plates are so your front end doesn't go to far out of alignment.do not put to much tension on the a-arm b/c when you loosen the strut it wont bang the strut tower.then loosen the strut,lower the floorjack very slowly until you can pull the jack out.pull the strut out then wiggle the spring out.its that easy.if you have anymore ?'s let me know.
