Front Strut DIY - New Koni Adjustable Struts

Putting in some shiny new yellow Koni's tonight and I don't remember anyone talking about what a pain in the @$$ that pinch bolt is. Jesus those bolts almost beat me. Almost. And now I understand why the pinch bolt is a one-time deal. Peace!!

Can vary greatly from car to car. Mine was a non-event.

I don't doubt in the north suspension jobs (or any job requiring the removal of bolts in general) is a royal PITA. I dare say I wouldn't do HALF of what I do for people if I lived where road salt and snow was a normal event.

But I am spoiled. We don't have that and thus, 99% of the cars down here have no rusty bolts to deal with, and no rust PERIOD. Makes life a LOT easier.
