Default Passenger side strut replacement, any complications?

I finished replacing my driver's side strut on my '06 PT earlier this evening, but I've heard that the passenger side was difficult to do. Some time back, I read a thread about an engine mount support getting in the way. (Searched, couldn't find it again.)


... and I found out what it was. Caliper has to come off to replace it, generally, or the brake line interferes with setting the knuckle back into the strut. I managed to sneak my strut back in without taking the caliper off by leaving it reasonably loose, so I could dip it under the brake line.

Really don't see what the guy in that other "shock/strut" related '06 thread was talking about with the lower engine support -but- I think he was trying to swing the shock in from the front. Now to check out the linkages, and ptcrew is probably best for that.
