SO much easier with the correct tool. You have told me before
that you used the same method I used to, the old "big needle nose
vice grips vertically inserted into the slots and turned" method.
This sufficed until I needed to do it off-car. It's difficult/impossible
to hold the strut rod static using this method. Not to mention, it
can be harmful to the threads and slot.
I got the actual tool from, um, that place that advertises in the back
of EC. It wasn't zelenda, and it was a short name. Shoot, I
thought it would come to me before I typed this much. If you still
need the name, let me know and I will look it up when I am home.
Btw, I _had_ to order the thing. I could not find it anywhere locally
in any of the specialty shops or the like.
You know, you could try a Snap On truck.
