Loosen lowering link bolts??

I don't have an air gun available to me. I tried with a socket and ratchet but the socket doesn't sit well since the end of the bolt is kinda rounded. Anoyne have any ideas?

I had to use a grinder with a cut-off wheel. Turned out the PO had used red loctite...between the bolt and the link as well as on the nut. New bolts and nuts were about $12/pair.

Hope yours is not as bad.
man stick a wrench on it and get a pipe and push as hard as possible mine are not on it that hard it takes some force but not that bad

I haven't lowered mine yet...have the links, but waiting for the lowering top clamp and kickstand. Whats the torque spec on those bolts?

You have to break them loose on the side with the nut...if you try to turn the bolt it ain't gonna happen
