Raise vehilce safely. Spray penetrant on nuts and bolts. Take a large vice grip and clamp on the the upper part of the old shock rod from under the fender well. Loosen nut on top and then break loose bottom bolts, The only ones that USUALLY give you a problem is the top nut cause it wants to spin the entire shock; that is the reason for the vice grip.Use 1/2" drive tools on this job.
