Re: I'm stupid...what exact tools do i need to take off stock struts (VeeDubBBoy)

air gun on top nut inside engine compartment, spring compressor to prevent flying springs with tons of force, thats about it, I think.
I think you can rent a spring compressor for a few bucks, its just a couple of clamps you screw on.
With the air impact gun you dont need to hold the hex in the centre, because the nut gets hit in stages with the air gun

very necessary, to get the strut assy out though, i have used a regular socket on the strut mount nut with some channel locks to hold the socket with a cheater on the allen wrench... sounds rigged and it is but it worked-
