Um...

I may be missing something here, but it seems you did a LOT of extra work without hitting the key area, the bolt that holds the strut in the knuckle.

The bolt passes through a notch in the tab, so it has to be removed completely.

That and the sway bar link is all that attaches to the strut at the bottom....

luck!
