Rusted strut inserts

Try the proverbial BFH to give the strut a few
whacks. If you have air tools, maybe spinning the
nut on and continue spinning. Maybe the combination
of spinning and impacts will break it loose.

You could check for a used unit. As a last resort,
some places will sell the entire strut assembly, not
just the strut.
