    Completely stuck!! Got some new BC Coilovers. From the countless hours of reading on this forum, seems like a breeze to install. Wrong! I've removed wheel and tire (easy). Removed nuts from shock top and bottom (easy). Drilled holes in trunk floor to access adjustment knobs (easy). Shock won't come out. Tried compressing them all the way and rigged up a way to keep them compressed. Still won't come out. Took off sway bar. Still won't come out. Removed nuts from upper control arm ball joint and rear tie rod ball joint. Those won't budge. Wack away with a hammer. No luck on either. Jacked hub up and down and all around attempting to knock those &*^% joints loose. No way this shock is coming out without breaking something. 5 hours and I've had it.

    Suggestions? I swear I've read so many hours of posts about this stuff. Guess different years are made very differently. Mine is a 2006 N/A. Now I'm fully stuck. Any help?
