In the arms there is a hole to get a big pry bar in to pull it down. Did you install the strut looseley in the strut tower 1st? Get the 3 struds thru the strut mount holes at the top & get one stud bolt & thread it 3 or turns just to hold it up there loosely so you can line up the strut into the spindle. Get another pry bar to open up the pynsers= the slot on the inside of the spindle to make it easier to slide the strut down if nessary.
