4kq rear strut removal PITA, help!


One of my rear struts is stripped at the top (the Allen socket). I tried
Vise Grips on the strut shaft, but the surface is too hard for them to
get a grip.

Any ideas other than:
Install spring compressors
Cut strut shaft with torch
Remove lower strut assy/spring
Weld handle to top end of strut shaft

Hmmm, maybe I could just weld the handle to the side of the shaft
without the torch business.

play with me)
