Tip & How-To about Chevrolet El Camino
How many times have we encountered frozen shock absorber bolts resulting in a simple and rather quick job and now becoming a real headache.
Your problems on these conditions are readily resolved if you follow my lead on this.
Be certain to have a set of metric and American deep sockets with different length 3/8 drive extensions.
Place the proper deep socket needed to remove the rusted solid frozen nut in question, be sure the socket fits snug.
Install into the deep socket an extension bar that allows the most amount of possible leverage on the assembly.
Simply push the extension bar side to side, and almost immediately the bolt snaps off just below the frozen nut causing the shock removal to become quick and painless, no need to find a torch to burn off the frozen nut and possibly start a fire, my tip is clean, quick, and easy.
