I tried helping replace the shocks on my brother'* 1980 Pontiac Bonneville. All the shock bolts had to be cut off. His car is 100% rust and it'* also from the midwest. Iowa to be exact. Only thing good about that car is it'* carrying on the Bonneville name.

Susension work in general sucks!! That'* the part of every car that is the most exposed to weather (the body at least has a coat of paint to protect it, usually). That and exhaust work are the jobs I dread the most....
