Double checking on how to remove the front suspension as one entire unit

If I want to remove the front suspension as a unit, is it really as easy as the two 22 mm bolts that go into the engine bay horizontally, the lower bolts that mount on the toebox, and three that secure the strut on top?

I ask because I need to swap the front suspension between two separate cars, so anything I can do to minimize the wrenching will save me a bunch of time.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Thanks Adam.

Getting some feedback that taking the shock assembly off may be a good idea anyway due to weight of everything assemebled. Any thoughts on that?

Due to the weight, I took mine off in 2 halves, the top half with the hub mounted to it, and then the bottom half removed at the lower ball joint. With the lower bolt removed to the shock absorber, you could remove that separately too...

Thanks Adam.

I pulled the bottom as a unit, then shock, then upper arm. Pretty easy so far actually.
