bolt help
 
I am trying to put on my eibach dampners and i cant get the bolt off that holds the stabilizer bar onto the strut. It turns but wont turn off. I put some PB blaster on it to get off the rust but it just wont come off.....2 hours and i can only get the wheels off. what should i do?

Are you holding back on the back side of the bolt? The bolt will turn freely with the nut. You need like a cresent wrench or a channel lock to hold back on the bolt.

i tried to but it keeps slipping off.

are you talking about the end links for the sway bar? if so, make sure you're using an allen wrench to hold the bolt in place. that's why it has that allen bolt impression in it.

also, instead of pushing, try hitting the wrench. impacts work much better than brute strength to get stuff like that off.
