I'm trying to change the shocks on my 1993 Acura Integra, but I just can't seem to loosen the self-locking nut from the bolt that connects the lower part of the shock to the knuckle. I tried Liquid Wrench and that doesn't seem to do a think, I also tried an impact screwdriver (the kind you hit with a hammer) but nothing seems to make a difference. I'm thinking that the impact didn't work because the way my suspension is mounted allows the whole nut/bolt/shock assembly to twist together a few degrees, but I'm not sure that's a factor. Is there a trick to removing these nuts or should I just go and buy/borrow a beefy impact wrench?
[Update] I got the nut off. Out of sheer frustration combined with late night stupidity I put the longest cheater bar on it and jacked up the end of the bar using a hydraulic jack. Surprisingly, it worked even though I was turning it in the wrong direction (that's the reason I hadn't tried that sooner). The nut unseized and I was able to remove it relatively easily afterward. I guess brute force was the way after all. Now I'm having trouble removing the bolt itself, but that's another topic.
