Do i need to remove the large hub nut with the wheel in contact with the ground ??....I tried un-doing it the other day but the disc/hub just spins around study

Biggest problem i have is the car now has no suspension on it (coilovers and upper control arms removed) so not sure how it'll sit when i lower it onto the ground.

Yeah cracking that nut should be the very first thing you do. If you have the brakes still on you can probably do it with someone pressing the brake, otherwise there's no way you'll get it off. Probably second to head bolts they're the tightest thing on the car!

Short answer martin is impact gun everytime or crack it when its on the ground.

OR

remove the shaft and hub and take it to a garage and ask em to buzz it off for you !!

Maybe you need something to hold on to your control arms and also to your coilcovers how about putting a bushing. you need something like control arm bushing you can check it how it can help you using that one...I hope i help you a bit
