    Hi everyone this is my first post, and it's a big problem!! After purchasing 40mm lowering springs i set about fitting them myself. Started with the rear which were'nt to much of a problem. Then i also managed to remove the passenger side strut from the hub and remove the spring and refit. But it wasn't untill i started the driver side when the bolt that goes through the strut snapped(the head sheered off) Luckily i had the nut off so i though i'd be able to just chap it through but it's so stubern i can't get it to budge??
    Is there anyway i'll be able to remove this bolt, is it a common thing for the these bolts to be seezed in?
    Would heating the bolt help or will removing the balljoint and anything else attached to the strut be the only way to get it out?

    Any help will be great thanks
