I actually take the knuckle out of the lower control arm. Its two bolts and you don't have to mess with getting that pesky long bolt out.
Removing the knuckle is two "smaller" bolts total, but becareful not to mix up the lower shock bolt with the knuckle bolt. The knuckle bolt is just a hair longer (about +5mm).
