    Tool for removing strut top mounts????

    Hi guys
    Iv been looking just recently for a tool to remove strut top nuts. A socket of some description that will hold the shock piston still while the nut is removed.

    Anyone got any ideas? Thought i might ask before i make something up.


    cheers

    Two spanners one the size of the nut and one the size of strut top, probably need a swan next spanner for the nut though.
