Okay to clear things up.......

The center strut mounting plate has been stripped out. The strut itself is flopping loose around inside the SPRING with the car's weight off the WHOLE ASSEMBLY. When I tried earlier to remove. The tension from the spring would not let the assembly come loose from the steering knuckle.

If I put spring compressors on the spring to relieve the tension, will I be able to remove the assembly that way?
