Is there a special tool to remove the nuts from the top of the struts, I believe I heard something about a "double-d" socket, let the remarks begin....

What I did was to use a deep well 3/8 socket to fit the nut and file two sides flat to get an open end wrench on it. Then use 1/4 extension with proper socket to pass through the socket to hold shaft while loosening/tightening nut.

You need to ask for it. That happened to my son (came "sans" tool). Curt Ingraham was kind enough to loan me his Bilstein wrench the last time I needed one.

Next time I may just let my mechanic do the job...

At least every Bilstien I've ever seen has.

wrench....or better yet, allen socket.....to hold the insert still while you turn the box wrench.

I did this last month, and if I remember correctly, the nut is 19mm and the allen is 8mm.

I came very close to stripping out the recess when tightening. Next time I remove it may be its last.
