    I'm truly stuck here! I have removed both upper and lower mounting bolts but the shock absorbers are still stuck in. (I assume these are the original shocks at 1st purchase because of the amount of rust build up.) I've sprayed cans of WD40 where the shock absorber slides into the hole (lower...
