It's unclear to me what you are trying to do. To remove the strut assembly you must remove the three top mount nuts first. You do not remove the center strut shaft nut until the whole assembly (strut, spring, mount and bearing) has been removed fully assembled. Removing the center nut while the strut is still installed is a recipe for disaster.
