Honda, in all their glory, though it was a good idea to use a 5 mm hex hole to hold the bolt steady while using a 15 mm wrench on the outside to turn the nut off. A hole, exposed to the elements for 16 years, will eventually get filled with road grime, and will get stripped when attempting to use it. The end result is no way to hold the bolt portion in order to twist the nut off. Thankfully I I had to replace the sway bar end link anyway. Otherwise I would have been up fecal matter creek without a proverbial paddle.

It’s amazing what a cheap rotary tool (aka MasterCraft equivalent of a Dremel) can do with a cut off disk on it. That’s about the first time that tool has actually surprised me.
