The brake line slides out of the bracket holding it to the strut body, and the tiny stock front brake discs make access to the strut-to-steering knuckle clamp bolts a cinch. The brake line bracket must eventually be transferred to the new strut, a task most easily done off the car.Camber adjustment is achieved by slotting the holes in the strut that the steering knuckle clamp bolts pass through. This gives a wide range of movement, but means any time these bolts are loosened, a professional alignment is an absolute necessity. That's a good idea on any car, but you can let it slide on many older Japanese cars, which used an eccentric cam to set the camber with some repeatability.
