I’ll be replacing Koni front struts, installed by previous owner long ago, with a fresh set of same, as part of a front end refresh on a ‘00 Viggen.
Read DIP’s and Dean’s instructions re: getting the stock sleeve nut off, requiring a vise, huge wrench and lots of torque. The Koni nut requires a pin spanner wrench and is not hex shaped like the OE nut. A pin spanner can’t possibly get that much torque on it, the pins would surely break.
Anyone have insights or experience removing the Koni sleeve nut they can share? I ordered Nick’s CNC wrench. Read an old Troll Tuner post by Nick suggesting that people maybe tend to overtighten these. Haven’t found a torque spec on this nut either. Is a pipe wrench the likely tool here?
