Next time put the open end wrench on the nut in the engine bay, then just turn the shock below with a pipe wrench.

Maybe, not sure how much I would have needed. It is always possible that it would have been enough but I would not have started this fun tread

Isn't that always the case, after you spend hours working on something some smart aleck comes by and does it in 2 minutes

If I only knew what I know now then I would be richer, healthier and living on 200 acres.

I have pulled several diffs apart and found that particular fastener (I think factory jargon is "retaining pin") sheared there. It must be a weak point. All the ones I dealt with still had some thread left, and I was able to very carefully unscrew them without the EZout. Last time I ordered, I picked up several spares to keep on hand.

Brake caliper housing bolt on a 2000 Lesabre. First tried doubling up open end wrenches, went to long breaker bar, went to electric impact wrench, then to PB and electric impact wrench, then to torch with me jumping on the breaker bar. Then went through cycles of PB, torch and breaker bar. Finally it came out some 2.5 days later.

I gave up on the impact wrench because there really wasn't enough space; would have backed out and pinched the wrench between the nut and frame so I went back to the breaker bar.

Longest I can remember was spending most of an afternoon trying to get the big nut off the flex tube of an FJ60 EGRvalve. It requires a giant size open end wrench and there's no easy way to get at it with enough leverage to crack it free. I ended up having to remove all the emissions crap and spaghetti from the driver side engine bay to finally have enough room to get it off.
