Default Anyone willing to help with suspension? Tacoma area?

Hey guys I've been every weekend for a month now trying to put wrx takeoffs onto my 03 forester. I can do it except the 19mm strut bolts will not come off. You name it I've tried it breaker bars wd40 pb blaster hammer using my jack to give pressure mallets and more. Only thing I haven't done is use an air powered impact wrench. Would someone be willing to help me with this one weekend or give me some tips. Thanks!

You can do it! Just put every bit of your inner baby, car lifting, boulder pushing cent of energy into it. Don't be afraid of busting a knuckle (wounding yourself). If your gonna work on your car yourself you are going to face this time and time again. And like i first said you can do it!

Fwiw if i was closer i would come and pitch a hand.

You have a mapp torch or something similar? Heat it up carefully, make sure any flammable liquid is not still on there.

Yeah my friend weighs 200lbs and is a basketball player and he and I both pulled full force on the breaker bar on my Wrench. No go. I'm worried about whacking the break disc and bending the outer metal or denting it. Got 1 side off but the cannot get others to budge

This, after the bolt is heated up it should break loose
