    DRC connection removal

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    The bolt that connects the rear DRC connects to the strut is stuck. The fronts came off easy. I've tried penetrating oil but no go. The wrench just rounds the soft metal. It's also hard to get a good angle and there isn't much room to work. Any ideas?

    Try unbolting the strut and laying it down horizontally. That way you get better access with tools. Try an impact gun, if the bolt head still allows it. Otherwise some big pliers, a good grip, squeeze your butt and hope for the best!

    I ended up disconnecting farther up the line and capping it there. Nothing would break that damn thing loose.
