Box wrench and a flathead screwdriver. Easy day.

Oooof I wish you would have asked if you needed any special tools before you started... You can try the flathead/box trick but you will likely need air for this. They come off in 2 seconds with air.

I'd also hit that with some lube like wd40 or liquid wrench and let it soak. It will make it easier

Saweeet, was planning on replacing my struts next weekend. Now that I know that nut is a *****, Itll be done in my buddies driveway with air tools rather than hand tools in mine.

Recommendation to everyone who has a garage or a space to keep one... get a compressor off CL or new from Harbor Freight and then you can either roll the dice with HF air tools or find someone selling a bunch of name brand ones on CL for cheap. Air helps SO much doing everything from simple tire removals to bigger stuff. Even just putting air in the tires is so much nicer with a 100psi in the compressor vs having some cheap electric pump struggle for 5 minutes per corner.
