Just bent, not loosened.  The bolts were all still snug....

If I were ever to do it again, I'd probably pull just the strut, but since I was re-running fuel lines, exhaust hoses, and redoing flooring, I opted for the method detailed by Ron in his instructional video.  I'm doing the vesconite replacements as well so hopefully this is the last time I pull things apart this thoroughly.

Please let us know how it goes.  And don't be afraid to whip out a saw to cut the bearings before you try to peel them out.  On thinking about it, a Sawzall-type tool would do it quickly.  I suppose that the special puller tool could work, but the darned things seem to end up electrochemically bonded to the strut.

Oh I'm definitely using the Sawzall method... As soon as I get this dam nut off. Lol

I'm in no hurry. Trying to rehab a shoulder and hip to be back on the water in April or so.
