94 pathfinder with 87 front diff

Postby pgbarrow » Mon Aug 13, 2018 12:10 am

Hi all,

I am trying to remove and replace all of the shock absorbing bushing connected to the front diff. I am struggling to break the nuts in the rear crossmember. There are five total, one on each side and three around the rear of the diff towards the drivers side. Of the three around the diff, I have removed the one closest to the drivers side, but the other two I have spent over three hours trying to break loose. They do not appear to be rusty and I have hit them repeatedly with PB blaster. It is incredibly difficult to get a socket onto one and impossible due to space on the other. A wrench will fit (it's a 17mm) but has started to slip. I'm really at a loss. Anyone have a y experience here?
