Pedders strut top nut tool PITA?!?

2439 Views 10 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  ChampionAdam

I'm having a bad day. :(

I'm trying to replace some pedders shocks with pedders shocks (cheapest option since I can reuse the springs, otherwise would have gone KYB).

The top of the strut has flat sides rather than a hex or torx fitting.

What the hell am I supposed to use to hold that while tightening the 19mm strut nut?

Any ideas would be amazing.

If so then I made my own tool from a sacrificial socket

once the nut is fairly tight you should be able to use a torque wrench on it without it spinning
