    Thanks jeff.




    Help!! I can't take off the strut from the spindle. What can I use?
    The strut is lose. Just that don't come off. Can I hit the bolt on the bottom?
    I tried but don't work.
    I don't if I Should hit it harder

    You can try PB Blaster, and wait, then hit it with an impact gun if you have one. I split the nut in two by scoring it with a dremel with a cut off wheel. Then broke the nut with a hammer and screw driver.

    thanks alot guys..

    yeah man..it took almost 3 hours on both shocks to get it of...the guy at the shop was having a really hard time.
    on the drivers side the rubber piece was messed up.. was almost 100 dollars so we decided to do our own work and fix it up..lol
    plus i replaced every bult and nut on the suspension.. i used some different ones under the brake booster reservoir..those are a bitch to get them off.
    some pics here..it was raining so ill post pics tomorrow when i washed the car
