Some time in the past, I was doing a shock change for a customer and the nut that spins on the top of the threaded shock tower was in a very difficult to access location above and around the strut tower.
To access the rear shock tower nut, you have to emulate a Kung Fuu crane style hand position just to get a wrench onto the nut, and a ellen wrench to hold it. It was a painfully slow way to remove the nut and could not hold both the nut and ellen wrench at the same time. There was no room for both hands to do this. So instead, I used my cut off grinder to cut the strut but ended up getting strut oil squirting out of it and onto the customers driveway opps
Anyway, is there a easier way to get that nut loose without making a oily mess happen? Is there a way to drain the oil before it squirts out all over the place if I cut it again? Sorry, do not have a Nissan pathfinder to look at.
