    How can I get to front top strut bolts

    I have a 98 TA and replaced the rear struts with no problem...but I'm unable to figure out how to get to front top bolts. Looks like they are covered by a plate that's welded over. Has anyone already done this and how did you reach the bolts? Thanks..much appreciated!

    Yes ^^^^^

    You have to remove the shock/spring assembly then compress the spring to remove the shock.
