well for the benefit of others -

i could not shift a single bolt. i tried using my 24" breaker bar and my 240v impact gun. they are all rusted solid, likley as they have not been touched since new.

the two 19mm that hold the shock to the hub started to round!

the lowest bolt on the rear is 17mm and is seized solid and the massive 19mm lateral link bolt, well i didnt even going bother putting too much effort into that one, it seemed welded in!

So, local garage has the pleisure.

they will probably heat them up and get air tools on them like the pros that they are.

whats wrong with the hub? the lateral bolt when removed will probably tear the bushes so be prepared for an extra bill from the garage, if its a wheel bearing your needing done it can be done on the car without removing the hub with correct tools.
