Strut Install not so well

Well today I was going to swap out my struts and shocks plus springs. Was doing good till I actually got to the car an was taking the strut off. The bottom two bolts are so tight I couldn't not break them loose. Even my impact gun didn't do anything. Now it's at my friends shop waiting to get them put on. Just a lil rant.

Re: Strut Install not so well

Once you start them, they'll go. 2ft breaker bar with a cheater is your friend.

When working on suspension invest in a breaker bar.
