you want to talk about hard bolts, try subframe bolts or reinforcement plate bolts (properly torqued)!!
Well, I had my 22mm combination wrench that would only swing 25 degrees or so per turn on the drivers side and maybe 45 on the passenger. I could have taken the swaybar off, but my 13mm socket wasn't deep enough and I didn't have a 13mm wrench. Should have spent 20 bucks on a ratcheting 22mm wrench. Severe forearm burn all around haha. 30 mins is an exaggeration but it sure felt like it.
