RE: Tool 2069

I concur with Mike.  I have a chain pipe wrench from Sears that works
Though with the cheater pipe on the end of the wrench, holding the strut
down is
a challenge.
On the really stubborn ones, I set up with  a cold chisel and a 3lb
mallet.  Chisel
the cap CCW and she'll come off before she knows it.  Course it helps to
have a
replacement cap ready.  Once you've vented your frustrations, you'll
usually find
you've vented the cap as well...  Most decent shocks come with a new cap

Good Luck!
