Having problems with your 1990 Eagle Premier ?
Frozen rear shock absorber bolt
\015 Actually my car is an '89 but should be the same for this problem.\015\012The left rear upper shock mounting bolt was frozen solid and only after a lot of impacting, heating, and penetrating oils did it finally start turning. However, all it did was unscrew from and bend out the "nut bracket" on the inside frame and the bolt still remains in place. I fear the spacer, which looks as though it would be inside the frame and unreachable, is also frozen solid to the bolt. I'm now air-chiseling the upper part of the old shock and hope to finish it's removal by breaking that part off. Still I'm wondering how to remove the bolt from the spacer? I fear that with all the work trying to remove the bolt that I may have broken loose an internal weld that held the frame spacer in place, and that now I don't see how I can get the bolt out. There is no room on the inside area with which to try hammering out the bolt or whatever. I can only work from the outside, which has lots of room. I see no way possible to get into the frame to try to free up the frozen spacer. The right-side bolts both zipped out easily and that shock replacement took less than five minutes.\015
