okay...if you haven't got access to a air-impact driver would rent one to "whizz" the top hexnut off....may be allowance for not having one...such as a hex impressed in or a normal screwdriver slot that you could turn against if an impact driver is an impossibility~

is there not a HEX impression (like one may use an allen wrench on) in the TOP of the shock (item 1)?

hex nut 12 and 13 kickin' your ass? crossmember? are we looking at the right cartoon?~


thank you for your time judge. I've tried air the problem is the nut on the sway eliminator wont break free from the bolt so it just spins tried heat also I don't see a nut near the knuckle wondering if there is a tool or trick to remove the **** thing

...yes an air impact driver...mine is an ingersol-rand triple hammer and gets anything free~ borrow one from your mechanic....needs compressed air to actuate~ 1/2" drive impact socket~
