Without sacrificial impact sockets, I never would’ve been able to get sheered and corroded on’ lug nuts off of my “Heep” Jeep. Cot. damn.
I had two of the lil’ bastards on one wheel that put up a lengthy fight. Even to begin with, the removal of all 20 lug nuts on this vehicle required me jumping on a breaker bar to loosen each one.
I do believe dissimilar metals, shitty lug nut design, and road salt are to blame. Oh, and probably someone using an impact gun at some point.
