Any ideas

Trying to remove the hardware in the suspension area and some nuts and bolts are stuck solid. I've sprayed some PB blaster and it loosened it up a small bit but still no luck on the actual removal of the hardware

Just take a simple hand held torch and heat up the nut you are wanting to remove and work it back and forth

Just be careful with the torch around fuel lines and rubber lines, bushings, etc. the torch can be found in the plumbing dept. get one with a built in igniter they're easier to mess with.

Don't get a pancake style one. Get a good one with at least 20 gallon or at least 5hp

+1
Most of the automotive type tools require 80-90 psi to function and at that rate you need some tank storage or else your compressor will be running every 2 minutes. Get the biggest you can afford and then get the next size. The little ones are only good for filling tires and airbrushing and finish nail guns.

This is the tool set I got from craftsman on Black Friday. Great starter tool set. Look on sears or any hardware store that might sell these kits.

You need more HP. 1.5 isn't much. The food news is air tools are a lit cheaper than electric. Air ratchet , sander and impact are a good start.

What you are looking for is the SCFM at 90psi the higher the better. This is the measure of how much airflow it can supply. If you are not using sanders paint sprayers or grinders then most 20 gallon tanks will do because impact wrenches only use short blast of air.

What about the HP everyone seems to tell me to get it around 5hp. A lot of these compressors I'm seeing at sears lowes etc have the 20 gallon capacity but are either 1.5hp or 2 if lucky

HP is not a good measure as far as I am concerned until you get up to the two stage big compressors. I had a 1HP 20 gallon tank compressor for many years and it would run an impact driver or socket wrench all day long with out cycling much. The SCFM and the air pressure do the work the motor only runs the pump to fill the tank. To run an impact wrench set it at 90psi and forget it.

Thanks for the insight. Makes it a lot easier pickin up a compressor now instead of searching for one with 5hp that's usually priced around a grand
