it seems i have to take down the lower control arm-the spring and strut will just stay together?

Correct, so long as you only remove the three Strut Bearing mounting nuts and not the center Strut nut.

Be sure to inspect the strut mount rubber and the bearing play while you have it out. They're cheap and easy enough to replace (though you will need a spring compressor to do the job - most rental places and some auto parts stores do rent them).

Many a suspension refreshening didn't realize much improvement because the strut bearings were overlooked.

Cheers!
