I actually used some mass air flow cleaner and sprayed it real good and then took a deep socket wrench with a three inch extension on a ratchet wrench and then took a metal bar and used it as a breaker to get it loose. Then zip tied a open end wrench to the nut and pulled on it for three hours until it came budged loose then wrenched the damn thing off! Took me almost two days it felt like it was welded on. Eight years without being removed really does work on those things. But got my new shocks on finally and I only drove it in and out of my garage but it already has a night and day difference in the driver seat. So much stiffer. Can't drive it around yet until I fix this traction bar clearance problem I am having...
