Removed Bilstein PSS9s rear springs, but the rusted 29mm bolt & nut holding the bilstein spring perch on is now seized. I let it soak over night of course before taking a socket and wrench to it. I got the nut a 1/2" up the rusty bolt threads before the nut decided to seize onto the bolt with another 1/8" to go. any suggestions? torch the nut? ideas?

can't fit a power tool in the limited space but I can fit the noozle of a torch to heat the nut up till it glows and try the socket and wrench method again according to two of my co workers. thanks for the suggestion

Heat... not much choice given the location. Usually I'll slice the nut, but no space there. Can you get an air hammer in there? air Chisel?
