refitting the strut.
To refit is to basically go in reverse to how you removed it so insert the strut, secure it at the top with the nut finger tight at first then push the top of the hub into the bottom of the strut and align the two holes up and push the bolts though and do up. Next its the drop links (see top of guide) then secure all the brake pipes and wires where they were before then tighten the top nut last. Refit your wheel then put then put the car back on the ground and with the weight of the car back on the strut just give the top nut another go with the spanner just in case. Pat yourself on the back as thats a job well done
This was exactly how i did it so may not be the way others do it but this way worked for me. Hope this is of some use to others
