jankinnu is on a distinguished road

I just installed 2.5" lift kit to 2006 4x4 Ram 1500. The lower strut bolts were stuck. I had to go and buy a big hammer, sprayed WD40 and gave the bolts heavy beats. I used long socket that fit at the end of the bolt so I didn't damage the bolt by beating the socket end. I also had impact wrench.

Once bolt start moving a little, I used impact wrench and WD40 until the bolt was spinning easily. After that I kept hitting the bolt back and forth with hammer to get the dirt out. It took a couple of hours but I got the bolts out.
