Having problems with your Kia Sportage ?

Im changing the front strut in a 98 sportage.. I have everything disconnected and im trying to get the drop link nut off. at first I couldnt get it to turn at all. Now the whole bolt is spinning on the other side where the ball joint is.

Answers :

You need to remove the Nut off by using what is known as a "pickle Fork" or a tie rod fork.

\015\012You put the fork in between the two parts and tap it in with a hammer, that will keep the bolt (shaft) from turning and you can then get the nut of. Or if you use and impact gun, hit the trigger several quick times on and off, and it will remove it.
