    Top Nut Strut help? Swapping out coils

    Hey everyone, have an '15 SR and recently purchased some used coils. Was in the process of putting them in today and had trouble with the top nut. Any suggestions/tips on getting it free/loose. Struggle to get a wrench on it to break it free. Thanks

    An impact gun made this easy for me. I can't remember if there is an allen key slot on the top of the strut nut, but a pass-thru socket wrench will make it easy.

    Thank you, a little penetrating spray and some knuckle skin and got them out!
