So I bought these coilovers on ebay thinking me and my buddies could get em on no problem, but when it came time to get the bolts off the lower suspension we hit a problem. We use a torque wrench, a torque wrench with a 6' poll attacked to it, air tools, and spent a good 30 minutes just trying to break the damn bolt loose. Anyone have any ideas other than heat or drill? I've had these springs for a good 3 months and i want my car dropped!

My favorite product for loosening up old rusty bolts is ZEP. It works wonders on my 60's era cars and doesn't make as much of a mess as grease.

my suggesting is some pb blaster. spray it on good and let it soak in a good 15 minutes or so. then take a ballpien hammer and hit the nut square a few good times. then take your air tools and let her rip!
