So far, impossible to remove the last tab. Just put some WD40 and hope it will work.
For those who mount the Eibach spring with the Spax shock, what is the height of the screw from bottom to top please?

For my stuck tab, I had to hacksaw the bolt (hacksaw blade held in a rag) and cut it. Into 3 :twisted: :twisted:

An option if you can't hit it out with a hammer!

Good luck!

So far, the arm is on the floor.
I still have to remove the bolt. I cut it and drill it, but still not good.
I have to drill bigger but just can't do it now.
