Shock removal on '87 5k

How do I get the nut in the top of the strut off? The one you need
that looong special tool to get to.. Both front are stuck on my car,
and I can't pull any hard without risking to round it off.. Will
heating it up work? The shock is to be changed anyway, but I don't
want to replace anything else because of heating it up.

Any other ways to remove it? I've used a lot of WD-40/CRC 5-56 on
them, but they're totally stuck.. Sitting down there in all kinds of
dirt and salt for over 10 years (!!) probably made them almost "weld"
to the strut..

I have to return the tool tomorrow, so I will really appreciate fast
