It has been a while but I believe that is the one with the spring above teh upper control arm.

Those are dangerous to remove. We used to run a chain through them to keep them from flying out then use a QUALITY spring compressor to collapse them. Once out of the pockets, release the pressure then remove the chain.

Many people have been hurt removing or installing these. A quality spring compressor is the key.
