Default Tension rods

Also called radius or strut rods. Looking for a set. My shackles are rusted onto mine. Switching over to polyurethane. David is out of stock. Gotta fit a 1991 4x4 v6

Let it soak in PB Blaster, wedge a.cold chisel between the tabs and the frame, and use a 2 lb. sledgehammer to drive the chisel in.

If that doesn't work, add more PB Blaster, let it soak and repeat.

I got mine loose after about 4 rounds like that.

Yeh. I had luck doing that as well as an air hammer on some rear suspension parts. These are in rough shape. Half the shackles are melded to the rod. I could grind them down but I don’t want to spend all week messing with them. I just found some new OEM’s on amazon for 40.90 which is better than nissanpartsdeals 83.00 plus shipping. I have them coming. Thx for the reply.
