Re: email farts and stripped strut :(

 Have you tried an impact wrench? (the air powered kind?) I find that with
these, you don't need to hold the shock rod. If you are lacking one of these
(as I am), try attaching a socket (or whatever wrench you can get) on the
nut, and using a hammer to provide the impacts to the end of the tool (in
a path tangential to the rotation of the nut). 

 With regards to the stripped hex, do you have a torx bit large enough
to pound into the hole. That would (in effect) broach a new opening.
Another suggestion is to use a dremel, or some other tool to cut a
slot into the top of the shock rod.

Good luck! (there must be a way!)
