Default Lower strut mount - 05-07-2018, 04:44 AM

Looking to change the struts on my E60Xi and I'm having some difficulty with the lower mount on the front struts. I've never owned a car with this mounting style before and they DO NOT want to move at all.

Any tips or tricks to getting these broken free?

The car is in very good shape but the pinch bolt was pretty rusty on the shank and threads. I've been soaking the whole area in penetrant since Saturday and going to go at it again tonight. TIA
