Sway bar trouble

Mine did that too. I don't plan on using the sway bar on the rear of the Goblin, so I just used an angle grinder, and cut the bar below the ball joint. I still need to remove the ball joint from the strut, but I will grind it off later.

little late but l find as long as you keep pressure on the ball, an impact will get the nut off. If they start to spin, i generally use a pry bar or flat head to pry on the link, like your tying to pop it out of the hole with the nut still on. Do let it spin excessively, it will burn out the nylon bushing. I dont like to get tools near the rubber boots of parts i plan to resuse

I’m having the same issue with the nuts just spinning. I’m planning on getting the new coilover kit for the rear suspension. Any harm in just cutting off the bolts?

Since you are getting coilover just cut the sway bar link, it's probably the easiest to cut since it is smaller than the bolt and nut.

Thanks... Was hoping not to have to cut things off the car this early, but this is a good excuse to go buy an angle grinder :)
