did you use the braker?
or you can unfasten it with the shocks installed on the car.
What I did was take the stock assembly off the car, and try to unscrew the nut while the springs were compressed.
I have to take the stock springs off in order to get the aftermarket ones on.
I held a hex wrench in one hand, while turning the nut the other way with my other hand, and the thing won't budge one bit!
So you think that I should just compress the springs on the stock assembly, put it back on the car, and try to unscrew it while it's attached to the car?
Can I reach the nut from the trunk lining?
