I am trying to remove factory stock rear shocks of 2010 4WD and having a problem.

I have done this type of shock replacement job many times in the past and I thought it was nothing special.

Both top and bottom bolt/nut came off with no problem. Then the top washer and rubber bush (located between the nut and body) do not come off as if they are welded onto the shaft. Am I missing something or do I have to cut the shaft like some people do?

Thank you.

Its probly just rust. Have you tried hitting it with a hammer? If you got the nuts off that's the hard part. I guess you could just cut the shafts if you want your replacing them anyway. Whatever is easiest for you :)
