Yes!! This!! OMG!!

Swaybar end links were a pain to remove. I just replaced my swaybar this past weekend and ended up rounding off one of my swaybar end links. Luckily I was able to get a new link from a local dealer.

I wonder if your less likely to round off a bolt using an impact gun.

def not! i actually made the mistake of using an impact on my first side, broke 2 Craftsman sockets and two 1/4" to 3/8" adapters....the next side wasn't any easier, didn't use impact and still ended up having to use a cutoff wheel

Were those sockets and adapters impact rated?
