Default Sway bar bushes and corroded nuts.

Hi all
Had a look at the 2 bolts that hold the sway bar bush bracket on and they look very corroded. I'll have a closer look when I get the wire brush to it. Anyone else had any probs with these exposed bolts being corroded. I'm worried that they may snap off if I get the impact driver on them, what then...?

I would not use an impact wrench use a hand ratchet or spanner so you can feel if the nut is giving and plenty of proper penetrating oil (not WD40) and as a last resort if your changing bushes anyway some localised heat

If the heads are rusted then likely the "correct" spanner might not grip properly. There are spanners/sockets on the market that are designed for just such occasions. Instead of flats or splines these have a wavy design which works great. I have a full kit of sockets and combi spanners that get a fair bit of use.

That sounds interesting. Do you have any more information on them, or a link etc?

Cheers,
Neil

The set I bought is called Metrinch and is USPro set. I believe I got it off ebay. They are pricey but got me out of a few potential disasters. As windy said there are similar other brands that do the same.

Got some. I found some Sealey ones from Demon Tweaks. I have had Sealey stuff in the past and never had any issue with them. Snap-On they are not, but for someone like me they are more than adequate.
They look like a useful addition to the collection. You can never have enough tools :-)

Thank you for mentioning them.

Just sockets. I bought a set of standard depth for 20.65 with postage. Just search for Wall Drive Sockets at Demon Tweaks. They are on offer.
