What is the trick to get the 21 mm nut off the spring with a torx? I'm a rookie at this could someone explain it to me?

box wrench, on the bolt, and a torx in the upper torx, the torx will lock the strut, and let you crack the nut.

that would be a better idea lol, but i assumed it was out and ready to be dismantled... thats usually the way i roll, forget to crack the hard stuff before its out of the car lol

i also do that with the axel hub bolts after i jack the car up haha

Haha yeah tell me about it, I hate it when lug nuts do that to you... and you have to use a 6 foot pipe on a breaker bar to get them off :o

Yupp box end wrench and a ratchet on the torx bit is the easier way to go. Also straight through 21 mm socket and ratchet, and then reg ratchet on the torx. And then the joy of having air tools..
