Default Help with Removing Stock End Links

Any tips for removing the 19mm nut that holds together the end link and lower shock tower?

So far Iíve tried:
- Big breaker bar
- Electric impact wrench
- Lots of sea foam lubricant left overnight to soak

It seems most of the torque is getting consumed with having the car on jacks and no wheel to counteract the force Iím giving it. Should I support the suspension then try again?

Thank you in advance!

Would torching the bolt help? Iíd be worried about the aluminum and rubber bushing behind the bolt.

Well I got them off. Helps if you know how to use your tools. Had the impact set to the lowest speed thought it was the highest. Threw on some impact sockets and it was off in a few seconds.
