Re: Struts from hell

Sorry to hear the problem...  Remember to only torque the carrier bolts to 92
ft.lbs on install.  If someone had overtorqued them and stripped the ridges,
they have a tendency to "weld" in place...  Since the bearing kit for the
hubs comes with a new ball joint nut, I assumed this to mean that the old nut
could be trashed....  So, back the nut off and beat the hell out of it with a
hammer and a piece of wood (or just the hammer), she should pop.  If not, try
to find a pickle fork, but sometimes this comes at the expense of the rubber
