I need to remove a strut bar on my 96 2WD Tacoma. As you'll see in the photo, I have a problem removing it.
Front end damage bent the front side of the bracket which holds the bushing.
Any suggestions on bending the front side frontward again would be most appreciated.
Here's why I need to remove the strut bar. The bracket on the opposite end is broken. Another possibility here is to separate the bolt from the bracket and strut bar (underneath the bracket). The bolts are pressed into the bracket and as you can see, the left one already came loose.
In case you're wondering, I'm planning to weld the broken piece to the bracket again. All I need is for the bracket to separate from the strut bar.
