We all know that coilovers sieze in minnesota winters. Nobody really likes to constantly move them and re lube them all the time. I fixed mine here is how:
Cutoff wheel (with a new disk is good)
big sharp chisel
Safety glasses (yea dont want any chunks of metal in yo eye)
here is what they look like before, all corroded and siezed and rusty looking.
if you are lucky like me, you get a blown one (thats why one is not the same length)
Start by placing it on wood and cut where the small portion is.
go slow, because you dont want to cut the actual shock body. Once it is pretty thin, put the chisel in the cut portion and hit it dead on with a hammer. If you look it should split the ring (crack it)
now do the same to the other side
after they both crack, the rings should just fall right off.
After a good cleaning with the wire wheel they look pretty darn clean.
Now off to the rebuilders for some new seals and fluid.
