The cast/camber set are maximum motorsports and I actually need help getting my pas side strut off.. I was able to install the driver side fine but on the pas side I can't get the top nut off the strut. I put a small wrench on the strut and the proper size wrench for the strut nut and the damn strut and all spin instead of the nut breaking loose. Anybody have any ideas on how the hell to get this damn strut nut off? the strut if it matters is lakewood and this is on a 91 mustang.

Thanks

Jim

Ahh what a pain in the ass, I've had those things stick on me. Are you saving the struts or replacing them?? If you are replacing them then I would just find something to grab on to that strut shaft and hold it still while you get the nut off. If you have to save them then you can't do that, it will nick up the shaft. I used to hit it with a ton of PB blast, come back in an hour or so, get a deep offset wrench to hold the nut then use another to grab the shaft and just muscle it loose
