OH, have fun with the front control arm bushings. What a PITA.
Well, my only grief with LCR, was when they sent me the plates that are on my other focus, they sent one Koni nut and one standard nut. Of course I assembled the standard nut first and ended up having to disassble both sides again, and reinstall the stock plates. Then LCR wouldn't just send me a replacement nut, I had to return the one I had first. Then they "lost" the nut I sent them. Luckily after asking them to quote me a cost for sending me the correct nut, the found the one I mailed them and sent me a replacement one. So then another disassembly of the struts and springs, and this time with the reinstall, I stripped the hex fitting at the top of one of the strut rods, so if I have to disassemble my struts again, I will have to by new front struts.

Cotrol arm bushings shouldn't be too bad, this car has aftermarket springs in it, so removed once before, and its a southern california car.
