get out your handy torch.
Try a nut splitter, they're $15 or $20 and handy to have. Be careful if you don't have a spring compressor on that strut spring. They launch the nut & washer.i got it out.
but now i cant get the nut off of the top of the strut so i can get the spring out. its really rusted and the impact gun doesn't get it off.
the whole shaft spins. how can i get the shaft to stop spinning? i tried using vice grips and an open ended socket but it keeps slipping.
is there any other way?
