Went out today and spent Ã‚Â£180 on new suspension shocks for my K plate Rocky. They look the business but are still in the box coz I cant get the old ones off. How do you get the old ones to unscrew? Turning the top nuts turns the piston, not the nut so im tempted to take out the angle grinder but relly dont want to cock this up. Also, at the back this will be a nightmare as there isnt enough space to get one up there. Also, at the bottom at the front if there was a nut holding the suspension to the pin then tin worms eaten it, but it wont budge even with a little persuasion from the crowbar. Blowtorch could be the next option but I could do with a bit of reassureance from anyone who's done this surgery in the past.
PS I know that daihatsu would have done the bits cheaper but im an impatient bugger!
