    Pictures would probably help, have you tried supporting the mount with a jack at various levels to see if that releases some of the shearing force? Jun 2, 2016 at 13:06

  • is this the style where the spindle clamps around the lower portion of the strut? I'd use some heat and a air hammer or an impact gun to either hammer the bolt out or spin it.

I had a Jeep Wrangler like that once. Heap'o'rust. Get yourself one of these. Works awesome.

Pneumatic Air Hammer

I hammered on bolts for a few hours on that fricking jeep. With this, it took just minutes. And of course the safety warning. You will need ear and eye protection. Stay safe out there...
