I would add that the bottom strut/shock bolt can rust itself together and never come apart. I had one that I thought was going to be easy and it still sits as an assmebly in my garage today.
The upper is usually a lot easier. If you let it sit, maybe apply a bit of heat. Then knock it out. Then put a wedge in the slot there in the front and the ball joint stud will come right out. I just noticed that you cannot get the nut off. The nut is the only side that turns. The bolt is captive.
